PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Heavy rain fell in parts of our area on Friday morning, mainly over South Jersey where flooding was ongoing in some places. 

While we saw some rainfall totals of 2-3 inches much of our region saw less than 1 inch. Skies will remain cloudy with highs in the 60s during the afternoon. Meanwhile, New York has seen 5 to 7 inches and it is still raining.

Although the Delaware Valley is enjoying a break from the rain Friday afternoon, a disturbance approaching from the west will finally merge with the disturbance off the Mid-Atlantic coast Friday evening. This will trigger more slow-moving/training showers and storms this Friday night.

The million-dollar question is where the showers and storms will set up. Likely much of this will be north and east of Philly over parts of South Jersey, The Shore and Bucks County.

Several inches of rain may fall on already saturated ground causing more flood concerns.

Finally, on Saturday, the pattern begins to fully shift. The coastal low and the front move offshore, so despite clouds and shower chances in the morning, the final day of September should feature some slow clearing - and October is coming in hot! We are up to 78 for the high Sunday - perfect weather for the Birds - and then into the low 80s with sunshine early next week. 

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 are no foreseeable impacts from Phillipe, according to CBS News Meteorologist Bill Kelly. 

Here's your 7-day forecast:


Friday: Chance of showers. High 64

Saturday: AM shower and then clouds. High 68, Low 59

Sunday: High 78, Low 57

Monday: High 80, Low 59

Tuesday: Fantastic for Phillies. High 81, Low 59

Wednesday: Sunny and mild. High 80, Low 58

Thursday: Some sun. High 77, Low 58
