Flash Flood Warning: Creeks and Rivers Rising as Stormy Weather Continues

The rain and thunderstorms aren’t going anywhere.  The National Weather Service Issued a FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect into at least Wednesday morning in  Montgomery, Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Lehigh, Northampton, Berks, Lancaster and Delaware counties in Pennsylvania, as well as New Castle and Kent Counties in in Delaware.

Remember the heavy rain makes the already  saturated ground more wet. The National Weather Service reports the round of rain will lead to the possibility of some larger rivers and creeks experiencing “significant rises” and possible flooding. Do not drive or walk through any flooded areas.

Look for mostly cloudy skies, very muggy air and more spotty downpours from passing showers and thunderstorms.  Northern and western areas have the best chance of rain with less in South Jersey and at the Shore. Philadelphia’s high: 83. Shore: 82.
