Floodwater recedes; most of Friday should be dry

Most of the area picked up around 3.5 to four inches of rain since Tuesday, but many locations saw more than four or five inches by the time the rain ended.

Along with the streams, creeks, and poor drainage areas, flooding has also been a big issue on the Schuylkill River near Pottstown, Norristown and Philadelphia. 

The Lehigh and Delaware rivers were able to stay well within their banks at all locations.

Warm weather quickly took over Thursday as temperatures soared into the lower and middle 70s with a mix of clouds and sunshine overhead. 

We also saw a shower or thunderstorm pop up in spots late Thursday afternoon. Any lingering activity will quickly die out Thursday evening, leaving us with patchy clouds for the rest of the overnight.

Friday will be a breezy and cooler day with highs in the middle 60s, despite a blend of sun and clouds. An isolated shower can't be completely ruled out on Friday, but the best chance will be north of the Lehigh Valley, and most of the day should remain dry.
