PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Sunday will feel like fall. It will be cloudy, chilly and breezy in the Philadelphia area, with a high in the mid to upper 60s. 

While the worst of Ophelia is past us, the remnants of the storm will linger throughout the rest of the weekend. 

Our Ross DiMattei was live Sunday morning from the Atlantic City Boardwalk where he saw white caps crashing into the shoreline and felt some lingering harsh wind gusts. However, this didn't deter a few very brave fishermen, who were out fishing on the jetty.

The storm caused some major road closures down in Atlantic City and throughout the shore area. Officials were even forced to block off the Townsends Inlet Bridge because of flooding on the Avalon side. 

Many people still turned out for the Irish Weekend celebration down at the shore, but the weather definitely made an impact.

As of 11 p.m. Saturday, Ophelia was downgraded to a post-tropical depression near Richmond, Virginia. With sustained winds of 30 mph and heading north at 8 mph, the path of the storm will bring it right up the I-95 corridor during the day Sunday.

Rain will continue to be on and off throughout the day Sunday, with gusty winds, making for cloudy and chilly conditions all day. 

A Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until 9 p.m. Sunday. Low-lying areas near high tides may have minor flooding.

It will be chilly with chances of rain as the Phillies take on the Mets on Sunday night.


Conditions will begin to improve Monday but the skies will likely stay cloudy. However, sunshine and dry weather are expected to return mid-week, along with temperatures in the 70s.


It will also be much nicer weather in Tampa on Monday as the Eagles face off with the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium. An isolated storm is possible around kickoff, but otherwise, it will be warm.


There is also a newly named storm, Phillipe. The tropical storm is located in the middle of the Atlantic, with sustained winds of 40 mph. The path will continue west through Tuesday before shifting north, so there is no foreseeable impacts from Phillipe, according to CBS News Meteorologist Bill Kelly.
