What Has Changed?
- Heavy rain may result in flooding and flash flooding this afternoon into Thursday. The highest threat for flash flooding will be across eastern Pennsylvania, most of New Jersey, and northern Delmarva.
- Dangerously hot conditions are possible starting this afternoon and continuing into Sunday. The highest heat index values are expected to occur on Saturday.
- Heat advisories and excessive heat warnings may need to be expanded and extended as we go through the week.
- Overnight lows in the urban corridor will be in the 70's to around 80. Consequently, there will be little relief overnight from the dangerously hot conditions.
