...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
SATURDAY AFTERNOON...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch 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.
