Welcome to monsoon season

Welcome to Monsoon Season.

Brace yourself for what should be a wet & wild day.

We're about to be slapped with rain and high winds that could gust up to 50 mph, and might bring down trees and power lines. Power outages could be an issue.

Yes, it's a Nor'easter, a remnant of the storms that have wreaked havoc and death across much of the country.

Now it's our turn.

I just drove into the office and it was really just misting.

I just stuck me head out the door at 5:15 looking for the papers - which still aren't here by the way - and I could barely push the door open against that stiffening wind.

There is a high-wind advisory in effect for much of the region, from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. for Delaware County, as well as Philadelphia, Delaware, lower Bucks, Burlington, Gloucester and Camden counties with wind gusts up to 50 mph and isolated to scattered power outages expected.

The winds will be at their strongest between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday.

Want some good news? All of this precipitation could have been snow if it were a little colder.

I'll take the wind and rain any day.

It's expected to rain much of the day, with the heaviest precipitation falling late this afternoon and into early evening. But there's no mention of snow in the forecast for the rest of the week. I'll take it.
