Statement as of 9:29 PM EDT on July 27, 2017

Expires 2:00 PM EDT on July 29, 2017


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from Friday afternoon
through Saturday afternoon...

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, Cumberland,
eastern Monmouth, Gloucester, Mercer, Middlesex, northwestern
Burlington, ocean, Salem, southeastern Burlington, and western
Monmouth. In Pennsylvania, Berks, Delaware, eastern Chester,
eastern Montgomery, lower Bucks, Philadelphia, upper Bucks,
western Chester, and western Montgomery.

* From Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon

* showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain will develop
starting Friday afternoon and will first move into northeast
Maryland, Delaware, southeast Pennsylvania, and southern New
Jersey, before lifting north towards central New Jersey.
Additional waves of showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain
will then continue to impact these same areas Friday night
through Saturday afternoon. Rainfall amounts during this time
will generally range from 2 to 4 inches, but training of
thunderstorms may result in significantly higher amounts.

* Heavy rain falling in a short period of time will result in
rapidly rising water levels along streams and creeks and in
areas of poor drainage. Significant roadway flooding may
occur. It is also important to note that heavy rain will fall
over areas that already received several inches of rain early
this week, so it will not take much for flooding to occur.

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.
