...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT...

THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR

* PORTIONS OF DELAWARE AND NORTHEAST MARYLAND...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.

* THROUGH LATE TONIGHT

* WHILE THERE IS A TEMPORARY LULL IN THE HEAVY RAIN THIS MORNING
  WE ARE EXPECTING BANDS OF HEAVY SHOWERS WITH EMBEDDED
  THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP NORTH AND NORTHWESTWARD INTO THE WATCH
  AREA THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT. NEW RAINFALL FROM 9 AM THIS
  MORNING THROUGH 8 AM FRIDAY SHOULD BE 1 TO 3 INCHES. HOWEVER
  THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR 6 INCHES IN A FEW LOCATIONS, WHERE
  THUNDERSTORMS OCCUR.

* RENEWED HEAVY RAIN WHERE AMOUNTS HAVE ALREADY EXCEEDED 4 INCHES
  WILL CAUSE SOME RUNOFF AND PONDING PROBLEMS. IF 4 TO 6 INCHES
  WERE TO OCCUR DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS ON TOP OF THE ALREADY 4
  INCHES THAT HAVE FALLEN, LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING WOULD ENSUE.


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.
