... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from 8 am EDT Monday
through Tuesday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* eastern and southeastern Pennsylvania, most of New Jersey,
northeastern Maryland, and Delaware.

* From 8 am EDT Monday through Tuesday morning

* showers and thunderstorms are forecast to bring periods of heavy
rain to our region from Monday into Monday night. Rainfall
totals of 1 to 2 inches are expected to be common, with local
amounts up to 3 to 4 inches possible. This could lead to flash
flooding.

* The risk of flash flooding is highest in urbanized and low-
lying areas. Rapid rises on small creeks and streams are
possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 relatively 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.
