* Through late tonight
* Showers and thunderstorms are developing across the area this
afternoon and will continue through tonight across far
southeast Pennsylvania, central and southern New Jersey, and the
Delmarva Peninsula. These showers and storms will have the
potential to produce torrential downpours, with localized totals
of one to three inches in a short period of time. In addition,
storms may be slow to move or may reform over the same areas.
This may lead to flash flooding in the areas of heaviest
rainfall today and tonight.
* Excessive rainfall within a short period of time can lead to
rapidly rising waters and flash flooding, particularly in
urban areas and along small creeks and streams.
A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding, which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected
to occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters
may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams
and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.
Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash
flood warning is issued for your area.
