Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:16 AM EDT Aug. 18, 2018 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northern Delaware, northeast
Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, including the
following areas, in northern Delaware, New Castle. In
northeast Maryland, Cecil. In New Jersey, Camden, coastal
ocean, eastern Monmouth, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer,
Middlesex, Morris, northwestern Burlington, 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.

* From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through this evening

* several rounds of heavy showers and thunderstorms will affect
the area through this evening. The heaviest rainfall is expected
later this afternoon into this evening as a cold front moves
across the area. Those areas that received heavy rainfall on
Friday will be the most susceptible to flash flooding.

* Heavy rainfall within a short period of time can lead to
rapidly rising water and flash flooding, particularly in urban
areas, and along small creeks and streams. The ground remains
fairly saturated due to recent heavy rains over the past several
weeks.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
