On Monday, snow is likely, possibly mixed with freezing drizzle, and the high temperature will be 33 degrees. "Localized street flooding is possible with a potential of 1-3" of rain.

Flash flood watches have been extended and now cover the Lehigh and Delaware Valleys, the Poconos, and all of New Jersey.

More rain for us, and some of that rain will be heavy and in certain spots. The rain should remain light to moderate thru Sunday morning as winds start to increase.

Well here we go again with another powerful system moving through the area today into Monday.

The storm will be most significant in coastal southern New England, though the entire Northeast will feel some impact. However, we also have a tropical wave that's going to move up along this front and interact with it.

One of the complicating factors is how Philippe will interact with a center of low pressure off of the North Carolina coast. These spots will change from time to time, and will not stay under heavy rain for long periods of time.

"Flash flooding is a very unsafe situation", the NWS said. "The saturated ground also may help to provide loosened root structures; it is conceivable that the wind may uproot a few trees", Cameron said. The strongest part of the storm will occur Sunday evening into the overnight. Once we're rid of any early morning showers, we'll welcome back some drier weather and some sunshine for the balance of the day on Monday. Thunderstorms aren't impossible either. The good news is, the high tide cycle for Monday morning winds will have already shifted out of the west, so there are no concerns for flooding.

Wednesday should be partly sunny with a high near 54 and a low of 43. The showers will be widespread and heavy at times. Becoming breezy. Windy on Cape Cod.

A Nor'easter is slated to bring heavy rain and strong winds to the city Sunday on the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy. Lows in the 50s.
