The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include portions of New Jersey and
  southeast Pennsylvania, including the following areas, in New
  Jersey, Eastern Monmouth, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex,
  Somerset, and Western Monmouth. In southeast Pennsylvania,
  Upper Bucks and Western Montgomery.

* Through this evening

* Slow moving showers and thunderstorms are expected in the
  region today. Locally heavy downpours are anticipated. Rainfall
  amounts as high as 2 to 4 inches are possible in a short amount
  of time.

* The ground remains saturated and streams and creeks are
  running high. As a result, much of the area is more
  susceptible to flooding than usual. The heavy rain will result
  in flooding of roadways and areas of poor drainage, as well as
  small streams and creeks.


A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters
may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams
and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a Flash
Flood Warning is issued for your area.
