The rain started falling before Saturday morning in Philadelphia. Some of the heaviest rain will fall overnight, but there's now expected to be a second round of heavy rain on Sunday afternoon.

"Heavy rains will fall overnight, but there will be a second round of heavy rains Sunday afternoon," the weather service says.

As a result of these periods of excessive rainfall, there could be flooding in areas with poor drainage, urban areas and along small creeks and streams.

The flooding could continue for several hours after the rains have ended.
