What to Know

  • A FIRST ALERT has been issued for Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania suburbs, South Jersey, the Jersey Shore and Delaware until noon Friday.
  • The First Alert is due to heavy rain and localized flooding.
  • Expect slower than normal commutes.

Drenching rain and heavy downpours are expected to bring localized flooding to the Philadelphia region Thursday into Friday.

A FIRST ALERT has been issued for Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania suburbs, South Jersey, the Jersey Shore and Delaware from midday Thursday until noon Friday.

During that time, heavy rain will fall on saturated grounds with several inches likely, particularly in the southern half of our region, Thursday night into Friday morning.

The biggest flooding threat is expected along streams, rivers and slow-draining roads.

The rain will cause messy road conditions during the Thursday evening rush and Friday morning rush. It could also cause washed out roads and heavy ponding on streets and yards.

Also temps will be going up throughout Thursday, so don't expect any icing with this system.
