Warm air is finally taking hold as snow showers slowly give way to rain showers. Temperatures will steadily rise above freezing and will be well above normal by tomorrow afternoon (Jan. 11). An advancing cold front will march east tomorrow evening bringing very heavy rainfall and the threat for flash flooding.
Saturday afternoon, a strong cold front will slowly move through the Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas with periods of moderate to heavy rainfall. The heavy rainfall will produce rainfall amounts of one to two inches with isolated amounts up to three inches. Localized flash flooding will be a significant threat through Sunday morning. Temperatures will skyrocket ahead of the cold front into the mid to upper 50's over the interior and upper 50's to lower 60's along the coast.
