Rain moving in tonight, possibly heavy in some locations, and a hurricane to watch...
Today there were some locations in Maryland and Delaware that received 7-9 inches of rain! Luckily those areas were isolated, with most people in Northern Virginia, Eastern West Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware getting 2-5 inches of rain.
The rain will be moving in to the Allentown and New York City Metropolitan areas tonight and will continue into tomorrow morning. Total rainfall amounts tonight into tomorrow morning will range from as little as a quarter of an inch to as much as about 2.5 inches. Areas that receive the higher rainfall totals will likely get a bit of flash flooding late tonight into tomorrow morning.
The steady rain should then taper off by afternoon with only a chance of a shower tomorrow afternoon through Tuesday as the storm sits and spins over our area.
Highs tomorrow rill range from only the low to mid 50's in Northeastern PA, Northwestern NJ, and Orange County, NY, to the mid 60's along the NJ Coast.
Saturday highs will range from the mid 50's in Northeastern PA to the mid 60's in Central NJ.
Sunday highs will range from the upper 50's to low 60's in Northeastern PA, Northwestern NJ, and Orange and Putnam Counties in NY, and in Northern Fairfield County, CT, to around 70 along the coast.
Highs will be in the upper 60's to low 70's Monday and the mid to upper 60's Tuesday.
Wednesday through Friday should then be nice with highs in the mid to upper 60's Wednesday, and the upper 60's to low 70's next Thursday and Friday.
Next Saturday we will have a chance of showers as a cold front and possibly a hurricane approach our area. Highs will be in the upper 50's to mid 60's.
Next Sunday through Wednesday then look nice (as long as the hurricane doesn't bother us). Highs should be mainly from the upper 50's to the mid 60's.
As for the hurricane, it was just named Matthew. The big question is the track. Right now the best guess is that it heads into the Bahamas, then northward, threatening the entire East Coast, but hopefully, with any luck, turning and heading out to sea. The timing would be anytime from late Wednesday through next Sunday. We will have to keep a very close eye on this storm.
Have a fantastic evening and stay dry!
