... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Friday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Delaware... northeast Maryland... New Jersey and
Pennsylvania... including the following areas... in Delaware...
Delaware beaches... inland Sussex... Kent and New Castle. In
northeast Maryland... Caroline... Cecil... Kent MD... Queen Annes
and Talbot. In New Jersey... Atlantic... Atlantic coastal Cape
May... Camden... Cape May... coastal Atlantic... coastal ocean...

ocean... Salem... Somerset... southeastern Burlington... Sussex...
Warren and western Monmouth. In Pennsylvania... Berks...
Carbon... Delaware... eastern Chester... eastern Montgomery...
Lehigh... lower Bucks... Monroe... Northampton... Philadelphia...
upper Bucks... western Chester and western Montgomery.

* Through Friday morning

* bands of showers will continue moving east and northeast across
the area through Friday morning. Thunderstorms will develop over
Maryland's Eastern Shore by midnight and spread northeast
through portions of the watch area overnight. Some of the
storms will contain torrential rainfall and result in a
localized flash flood threat.

* The axis of heaviest rain still remains uncertain. However...
the potential for localized rainfall amounts of 2 or more inches
in one hour will bring the risk for flash flooding particularly
in urban areas. Isolated rainfall amounts of 5 inches or more
are possible during this event where storms move repeatedly over
the same area. This would favor the Delmarva into southern New
Jersey.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

* Flood Advisory for...
Cape May County in southern New Jersey...
southern Atlantic County in southern New Jersey...
southeastern Cumberland County in southern New Jersey...

* until 1045 PM EDT

* at 646 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause poor drainage, low-lying, urbanized

fall, in about a two hour timeframe.
