* Showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain over Delmarva and
southern New Jersey are lifting to the north and east early this
morning. Additional waves of showers and thunderstorms with
heavy rain are expected to move into the area later this
morning. Rainfall amounts during this time will generally range
from 2 to 4 inches. However, training of thunderstorms may lead
to isolated higher amounts in excess of 6 inches, especially
across portions of Delmarva.
* Torrential rain falling in a short period of time will result
in rapidly rising water levels along streams and creeks and in
areas of poor drainage. Significant roadway flooding may
occur. Locations in far southeastern Pennsylvania, southern
New Jersey, northeastern Maryland and Delaware that were just
affected by heavy rain since last weekend will be particularly
vulnerable to flash flooding.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
