Statement as of 4:02 PM EDT on May 27, 2018

Expires 3:00 AM EDT on May 28, 2018


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of Delaware, northeast Maryland, southern 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

western Chester.

* Through 4 am Monday.

* Showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop this evening

Maryland and move slowly eastward across southern New Jersey and
Delaware through tonight. Torrential downpours may lead to
excessive rainfall amounts of up to two inches in one hour and
two to five inches within a few hours. Excessive rainfall within
a short period of time can lead to rapidly rising waters,
particularly in urban areas and along small streams, which can
lead to flash flooding.


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 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.

time of tonight's high tide.
