PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — After an absolutely fantastic August weekend, Monday will keep that feeling alive for one more day.
Other than a few clouds later in the day, you can expect lots of sunshine throughout the Delaware Valley, with warm but average high temperatures.
Clouds will increase tonight, and Tuesday will be an overcast day, with scattered rain throughout the day. That rain could be heavy late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, so it is likely that flash flood watches will be posted later today. For right now, only a coastal flood advisory will be in effect from 8pm-midnight Monday along the Jersey and Delaware Shores, due to the possibility of coastal flooding during high tide.
Any rain and thunderstorms will begin to taper off Wednesday morning, with some afternoon clearing possible from west to east.
After that, the weather is looking great for the remainder of the week, including the weekend. However, cooler than average (but comfortable!) temps are to be expected, including some nice sleeping weather.
Philly — 87
Shore — 79
Poconos — 78
