Monday is going to be warm and wet. Rain will continue to be heavy at times, with widespread 1-2 inches possible and locally higher amounts in the Poconos.

A few embedded thunderstorms are possible in the morning as well, but the greatest risk of storms comes as the cold front passes in the early afternoon.

There is a slight risk for severe weather is issued for Monday as some of the storms could produce locally damaging wind gusts.

Besides the risk of winds from the storms, it will be just an overall extremely windy day with gusts of 50-60 mph possible all day long.
