...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS CANCELLED...

The Flash Flood Watch for portions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania
has been cancelled. The axis of heavy rainfall is now expected to
remain south of Interstate-195 in central New Jersey and the
Pennsylvania Turnpike in eastern Pennsylvania. The threat of
flash flooding has diminished accordingly. However, moderate
rainfall could lead to poor drainage flooding tonight into
Saturday morning.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM EDT THIS
AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey,
  eastern Maryland and Delaware.

* From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through Saturday afternoon.

* Showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain is expected to develop
  across Delmarva this afternoon before expanding northeastward
  into southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey this
  evening. Additional waves of showers and thunderstorms with
  heavy rain will then continue to impact the area tonight through
  Saturday morning. Rainfall amounts during this time will
  generally range from 2 to 4 inches. However, training of
  thunderstorms may lead to isolated higher amounts in excess of 6
  inches, especially south of the Mason-Dixon line.

* Torrential 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.
  Locations in far southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey,
  northeastern Maryland and Delaware that were just affected by
  heavy rain since last weekend will be particularly vulnerable to
  flash flooding.

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.
