Good afternoon. Here are some of the highest rainfall totals we have received over the last 12 hours. Several Areal Flood Warnings remain in effect for areas just to the north of I-195 where heavy rain fell early this morning. Remember, you should never attempt to drive through a flooded roadway. Turn around, don't drown! For a more detailed summary of this morning's heavy rainfall check out our webpage: https://bit.ly/2udhtgC.

I don't think I say this enough but I love the work that we do on a grassroots level. We had a great turnout at our "Monthly Employment Session" with the Philadelphia Parking Authority at the Dixon House today. What impresses me the most was the young people that showed up seeking employment. I honestly believe that if we challenge these companies to come to the heart of the community to discuss job opportunities, we have a chance to really put the people in our community to work. Thank you to our partners the Dixon House, Mother's Bonded By Grief and many more for making this event a success. We look forward to seeing you at our next employment session.

Good morning everyone! Hopefully you are having a great start to your Memorial Day weekend. Another warm afternoon is in store for today. In fact, most locations are already near 80. Thunderstorms are likely this afternoon, mainly after 3 pm and will continue into this evening. A backdoor cold front will push south tomorrow, leading to cooler highs in the upper 60s to near 70 north and low 80s south into Delmarva.

For those going to the beach this Memorial Day Weekend, please keep the following in mind: It`s quite a bit different swimming in the ocean versus a pool. One of the main threats to swimmers in the ocean are rip currents. A rip current is a small-scale surf zone current moving away from the beach. If you`re a weak swimmer, it is recommended to swim with a strong swimmer and/or a flotation device nearby. Remember, a low risk of rip currents (like the risk forecast for today) does not mean no risk! Life threatening rip currents often still occur near jetties, reefs, and piers. There were 8 rip-current fatalities last year alone in New Jersey. The vast majority of these rip current victims swam at unguarded beaches. Always swim in the presence of a life guard! The latest rip current forecast is available at www.weather.gov/beach/phi/

Tonight at 6pm is the opening reception of Motion Pictured, an exhibition of images and objects that personify the timeless activity of movement/motion in still visual art forms. The exhibit is exhibit co-hosted by @davinciartalliance to celebrate the anniversary of our film program's rebirth as @LightboxFilmCenter. From the perspective of traditionally static media (painting, printmaking, photography, and the like), the representation of movement has challenged artists throughout history. However, the birth of cinematography in the mid-19th Century marked a monumental turning point in how visual artists addressed movement in their work.
