tomorrow. the record high for philadelphia 62. forecast is 64. and most of the rest of the area should be near records or be matching records tomorrow and that comes with heavy rain. that warm air from the south on the warm side of this big weather system with snow well up to the north and that is going to stay to the north. that warm's going to move in tomorrow. the rain's going to come with it. right now, dry and for the morning commute we could see rain and the bulk and heaviest later in the afternoon and the timing is not good and just keep it in mind before you leave work tomorrow. flood watch for all the counties in green. parts of the lehigh valley. basically from trenton down to wilmington and interior new jersey and including philadelphia. the main areas that we are really going to keep an eye on are ones with snow cover. north and west of philadelphia. needing an inch to an inch and a half for these areas to flood and that's pretty much what we expect tomorrow and burkes and chester county we do expect
about an inch to an inch and a half there. some areas close to two possibly. northern delaware and new jersey we could see from half an inch to an inch in some spots and watching for localized flooding. the timing has it approach for the morning commute. 8:00 a.m. and most north and west and then the early afternoon we see more of that rain moving in. evening commute 5:00 p.m., heavy rain and. temperatures in the 60s. and then by 6:00 p.m., the rain towards the shore and the delaware beaches, clearing as we go into thursday morning and thursday morning commute looks dry and the heavy areas of rain we're concerned about and then next week. we are watching one storm system which computer models here showing the possibility for snow. this would be a week from today. so we are just going to keep our eye on that going into the next seven days. for tonight, though, clouds increasing. not as cold. 32 north and west and then tomorrow we have the record warmth. mid to low 60s.
