Storm Run-Off Swelled Runs, Creeks in Lower Pottsgrove

MOUNT HOLLY NJ – Persistent rain that began Friday (May 6, 2022) at about 8 a.m. across the Greater Pottstown area was expected to wane during Sunday’s (May 8) early morning hours. However, it left behind accumulated storm water that swelled local runs and creeks (above).

Forecasters said there was an 80-percent chance of precipitation early Sunday until 2 a.m., accompanied by northeast winds blowing at around 15 miles an hour. The National Weather Service office in Mount Holly NJ anticipated cloudy skies throughout Sunday and temperatures in the 50s. Low temperatures during Sunday overnight hours were predicted to fall into the 40s.

From there, though, things start looking up.

Monday will arrive with bright sunshine and a high near 64 degrees. Sunshine remains and the warmth increases, the weather service said: Tuesday (May 10) with a high of 69; Wednesday (May 11), with a high of 71; Thursday (May 12), higher still at 76; and Friday the 13th may be luckier yet, topping out near 78.
