Flash Flood Watch

Flash Flood Watch in effect from 12 PM today until 6 AM on 6/18/2019. Be prepared to take action in the event that flooding develops.

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

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

* From noon EDT today through late tonight

* Strong thunderstorms are expected to develop and move through
  the region this afternoon and evening. The environment will be
  favorable for torrential rainfall with these storms.
  Additionally, storms may begin to track over the same
  locations as a very slow-moving front allows for the
  redevelopment of storms in similar locations over time. There
  is potential for one to three inches of rain in a very short
  period of time where the strongest storms occur.

* Flash flooding is possible where the strongest storms develop
  and persist. Flooding in urban and poor-drainage areas is
  likely if torrential downpours occur. Rises on small creeks
  and streams are possible as well.
