Sunny skies and warm temperatures ahead
Nearly perfect weather will continue through at least Friday in Bucks County and the Delaware Valley, even as the National Weather Service in Mount Holly issues a hazardous weather forecast for Lower Bucks County.
There is no need to worry about this notice, as it warns of the possibility of minor coastal flooding on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The weather service said the alert is just a precaution.
“River levels may rise slightly,” National Weather Service meteorologist Patrick O’Hara said. “But there’s nothing to worry about at all.”
It should be noted that the water level on the Delaware River in Trenton was 11.18 feet as of Monday morning and is expected to drop over the next few days. The flood stage for the Delaware River at Trenton is 20 feet.
The water level in the Neshaminy Creek in Langhorne was 1.8 feet Monday morning, and flood stage was 9 feet. The water level in Neshaminy Creek in Langhorne is expected to remain below at least 2 feet through the week.
Here’s everything you need to know about a week’s worth of sun in Bucks County.
Sunny and calm weather until Friday; No rain in sight
A string of sunny days with a warming trend may be what Bucks County residents were hoping for after a long stretch of rainstorms, blizzards and freezing temperatures during the day.
The weather service posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, to alert the Delaware Valley of the sunny news:

“High pressure will bring sunny skies, with temperatures rising later this week,” O’Hara said. “The next chance for rain is Saturday, but by then temperatures will be moderate. We don’t see anything for rain on Friday, but there is a very low chance – about 20% to 25% – of rain on Saturday.
“Overall, it will be very calm, with sunny days and clear nights,” O’Hara added. He added: “The winds coming from the north will keep temperatures low for the time being, but things will rise as the week goes on, when the winds shift and come from the southeast.”
