Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 11:04 PM EDT on July 28, 2016

Expires 12:00 PM EDT on July 29, 2016


The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a

* small stream Flood Advisory for...
southern Kent County in central Delaware...
Sussex County in southern Delaware...
Talbot County in eastern Maryland...
south central Queen Anne's County in northeastern Maryland...
Caroline County in eastern Maryland...

* until 300 am EDT

* at 1102 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain across eastern
Maryland and Delaware. 1 to locally 2 inches of rain is possible
in portions of the advised area. This rainfall could cause
flooding of roadways and small streams in the advisory area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... don't drown.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Friday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues 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... Hunterdon...
Mercer... Middlesex... Morris... northwestern Burlington...
ocean... Salem... Somerset... southeastern Burlington... Sussex...
Warren and western Monmouth. In Pennsylvania... Berks...
Carbon... Delaware... eastern Chester... eastern Montgomery...
Lehigh... lower Bucks... Monroe... Northampton... Philadelphia...
upper Bucks... western Chester and western Montgomery.

* Through Friday morning

* bands of showers will continue moving east and northeast across
the area through Friday morning. Thunderstorms will develop over
Maryland's Eastern Shore by midnight and spread northeast
through portions of the watch area overnight. Some of the
storms will contain torrential rainfall and result in a
localized flash flood threat.

* The axis of heaviest rain still remains uncertain. However...
the potential for localized rainfall amounts of 2 or more inches
in one hour will bring the risk for flash flooding particularly
in urban areas. Isolated rainfall amounts of 5 inches or more
are possible during this event where storms move repeatedly over
the same area. This would favor the Delmarva into southern New
Jersey.

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.
