In the wake of torrential rainfall and flash flooding, spotty showers will keep Philadelphia damp at times during this first weekend in May.
The storm spanning April 29 and 30, 2014, unloaded between 3 and 7 inches of rain on the region.
On Wednesday, the storm dropped 4.42 inches of rain on Philadelphia, which did not make the top 10 wettest calendar days on record. The wettest day on record at Philadelphia was on Sept. 16, 1999, when 6.63 inches of rain fell courtesy of Hurricane Floyd. Philadelphia has received 6.69 inches of rain during April 2014.
Additional showers are forcing residents and visitors to keep an umbrella handy this weekend as a storm system tracks across the Northeast.
The good news is that the light and spotty nature of the showers will allow for some breaks of dry weather and will prevent any flooding problems. However, the showers can still put a damper on outdoor plans.
Gusty winds, including in the heaviest showers, may prove to be another annoyance to residents and visitors.
Amid the shower activity, temperatures will still manage to climb into the lower 70s.
The shower chance will end by Monday, setting the stage for a stretch of dry weather through Wednesday.
Partly to mostly sunny conditions will prevail daily from Monday through Wednesday with temperatures rising to within a couple degrees of normal. A high around 70 F is typical in early May.
Not until late in the week will warmer air surge across the mid-Atlantic, likely returning 80-degree warmth to Philadelphia.
