Remnants of Post-Tropical Cyclone Delta will bring drenching rain, possible flooding and strong, gusty winds that could cause power outages. Stay tuned to WCBI for the latest weather information and make sure you have a way to get those watches & warnings. Onshore flow will keep things cool and wet for the remainder of the day, though, with temperatures stuck in the low to mid-60s and lots of light rain and drizzle. Tuesday is looking attractive with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 70s.

Wind gusts could top 40 miles per hour in some spots, with relative humidity values dipping into the single digits at some parts of the day.

Stormy weather should taper to showers in the afternoon as Delta's deposits head east off the coast, the National Weather Service and EPAWA Weather Consulting said. Overnight will be a cool one as we see temperatures falling back into the middle and upper 60′s for our Sunday morning.

"Isolated tornadoes and damaging wind gusts will also be possible, mainly this afternoon and evening", the Raleigh office says.

At this point, there are no flooding concerns except for some poor-drainage areas. More than a quarter-inch of rain fell overnight, records at Lehigh Valley International Airport show. "The showers and thunderstorms will diminish from the southwest tonight".

Thursday should be mostly sunny with a high of 74 and a low of 51.

MONDAY: We'll dry out early next week as we the sunshine returns. Expect a high near 68 and a low around 54.

TUESDAY: Some rain could develop along a cold front Tuesday. Highs Friday will be in the mid to upper 60s.
