Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 7:43 AM Jun. 18, 2019 – National Weather Service
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* Northeast Maryland, Delaware, central and southern New Jersey,
and southeast Pennsylvania.

* Through late tonight

* Another round of showers and thunderstorms is expected today
into this evening. The strongest storms will be capable of
producing torrential downpours, and the storms may have a
tendency to move over the same areas. Rainfall totals of 1 to 3
inches may occur in a short amount of time. This could lead to
localized flash flooding.

* The risk of flash flooding is highest with storms that produce
excessive rainfall rates for an extended period of time.
Flooding is most likely in more urbanized areas, in areas of
poor drainage, and in locations that have received heavy
rainfall the past few days. Rapid rises on small creeks and
streams are possible.

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 some roadways. 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.
