Showers are currently moving into the area from the west. Temperatures will remain warm enough for rain but some snow is likely to mix in for the Poconos and extreme northwest New Jersey. Rain and snow showers should move out of the area by mid afternoon. Winds will pick up as showers move through and will remain blustery through the evening with lows in the mid 30s throughout much of the region and near 30 for the Poconos and northern New Jersey.

Hope everybody is safe and dry this evening. As additional rainfall and flooding reports come in, we will update the Public Information Statement (PNS) and Local Storm Report (LSR). Feel free to pass any reports on to us. Although the rain has ended, many of the smaller rivers and streams are still elevated, and in some cases, are flooded. Continue to exercise caution out there!

Good things come in trees. As many of you know, East Point Breeze Neighbors participates in the PHS : Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Street Tree planting twice a year, in November and in April. This Saturday, April 21, is the day! We, along with our friends at Newbold CDC and West Passyunk Neighbors have a total of 25 trees to stick in the ground, including 10 in the EPBN service area. We need a few more able-bodied neighbors to help dig some pits and plant some trees. If you can volunteer on Saturday morning (around 9:30am), comment here, PM us or email clean@epbneighbors.org. BONUS POINTS if you happen to have a heavy-duty digging shovel, a pick-ax or a push broom that you can bring along! This is a regular Tree Party, and as a great poet once said: After the Party is the Afterparty! All volunteers are invited for pizza and beer post-trees at Brewery ARS! NOTE - our newest neighborhood Tree-Tenders group, Point Breeze Tree Tenders is also planting trees on 21 April. Their "zone" is WEST of 18th street, so if you live closer to that side of the Breeze, give them a shout -With their trees added, we're up to almost FORTY NEW TREES! ANOTHER NOTE - The deadline for November trees is MAY 7! Too much information for this post, so watch this space next week for more info!

Quite warm for all areas away from the immediate coast today, with even a record high temperature set at Allentown, PA (87 degrees!). A cold front though will settle south across our area during tonight, bringing much colder air with it along with developing low clouds and some light rain or drizzle.

Have you had a chance to enjoy the warm weather yet? If not, today is your last chance for a while! A cold front will sink south later today. Highs today are forecast to be in the 70s and 80s, but by tomorrow, it will be around 30 degrees lower! For those of you whose outdoor plans include time near the ocean, please keep in mind that water temperatures on the ocean and bays remain quite cold. Those participating in water activities should take care not to enter the water. Hypothermia, exhaustion, and unconsciousness can occur in less than one hour.
