A week that began with heavy rainfall in the Philadelphia region is expected to end the same way as April showers appear to be getting a head start.
The National Weather Service in Mount Holly announced Thursday meteorologists are tracking a storm projected to bring a significant amount of rain and wind across the tri-state area. The service has issued a hazardous weather outlook advisory for much of the area.
The weather forecast calls for a 100 percent chance of rain on Friday in Philly, eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Residents should expect at least an inch of rain to drop across the region. Some parts could get as much as three inches.
Flooding could occur in urban and poor drainage areas.
Meteorologists are also calling for sustained winds between 10 to 13 mph and gusts of up to 23 mph with a high temperature of 49 degrees.
The storm should move out of the area on Saturday morning around 7 a.m.
