The Flood Watch for Thursday continues and has been extended southward to cover most of Southerwestern New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania into Delaware. Overnight weather models seem to be shifting the axis of the heaviest rain slightly to the west with some 2 to 3 inch forecast amounts being generated.
FLOOD WATCH NAM RAINFALL FORECAST THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING 2AM
Weather models have some variation as to who gets the most but it is safe to say that another 1 to 2 inches of rain area wide is likely. This will be the 4th 1 to 2 inch rainfall event in the last 8 days making this probably one of the more active weather periods we have seen in well over 2 years. In addition there is the threat for severe weather from Central New Jersey southward so thunderstorms thown into the mix will mean for more variation. The ground is saturated between the rain and the winter snow melt so local urban and small stream flooding appears likely and even some river flooding is probable in some areas.
At least for today there are no weather issues to speak of other than clouds which should give way to some sunshine especially away from the coast with highs in the 60s. Rain is likely to develop before daybreak on Thursday and continue heavy at times into Thursday evening.
At least we can say that once this storm moves away we have a bit of a break comnig with dry weather and sunshine for the weekend and warm temperatures coming next week with highs in many areas in the 70s and perhaps even near 80. We will address the long range outlook later today.
