So as usual, we go from hardly any rain at all to a whole bunch. The next system looks to deposit 1-1.5″ of rain to western New Jersey later Thursday into Friday.

I’ll post updates tomorrow.

...Flash Flood Watch in effect from Thursday evening through
Friday evening...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of Delaware...northeast 
  Maryland...New Jersey and southeast 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 ocean...Cumberland...eastern Monmouth... 
  Gloucester...Hunterdon...Mercer...Middlesex...northwestern 
  Burlington...ocean...Salem...Somerset...southeastern 
  Burlington and western Monmouth. In southeast Pennsylvania... 
  Delaware...eastern Chester...eastern Montgomery...lower 
  Bucks...Philadelphia...upper Bucks...western Chester and 
  western Montgomery. 

* From Thursday evening through Friday evening

* periods of showers and embedded thunderstorms are expected
  Thursday night into Friday. Some of the thunderstorms may
  contain torrential rainfall and result in a localized flash
  flood threat. 

* The axis of heaviest rain remains uncertain at this time.
  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.

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.
