As the week ended with urban flooding problems and travel delays around Philadelphia, rain will become less frequent over the Columbus Day weekend.

The storm responsible for the rough surf at the shore and areas of flooding rain around south-central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland will slowly spin southward this weekend.

As it does, the potential for a bit of rain and drizzle will end by Sunday morning with some sunshine returning Sunday afternoon.

By Columbus Day, most areas around Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware will see a mixture of clouds and sunshine with seasonable afternoon temperatures.

Tides will continue run above normal at the southern New Jersey shore and the Delaware beaches through Sunday, but a slow decrease in seas and tides are forecast into Monday.
