Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 9:58 AM EDT Jul. 28, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect from 2 PM EDT this afternoon
through Friday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of Delaware... northeast Maryland... southern New
Jersey and southeast 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 southern New Jersey...

coastal Atlantic... coastal ocean... Cumberland... Gloucester...
northwestern Burlington... ocean... Salem and southeastern
Burlington. In southeast Pennsylvania... Delaware... eastern

* From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through Friday evening

* scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop this
afternoon in the Delmarva and expand northward into southeastern
Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey through this evening. Some
of the thunderstorms will contain torrential rainfall and
result in a localized flash flood threat. Showers will become
more widespread late tonight into Friday and contain embedded
thunderstorms that could produce additional heavy rainfall over
the area.

* 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 4 inches or more are
possible during this event where storms move repeatedly over
the same area.

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.
