8/6/20 – The National Weather Service in Mount Holly New Jersey has issued a Flash Flood Watch until Friday afternoon.

Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms producing locally heavy rain will develop Thursday through Friday morning. The ground remains saturated in the region due to the recent heavy rains associated with Tropical Storm Isaias, and this will make it easier than usual for flash flooding to occur in areas that receive heavy rainfall over a short duration.

Areas of flash flooding are expected, especially in urban and flood-prone areas. Small streams and creeks will also be susceptible to flooding, especially those that remain elevated from antecedent rainfall.

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.
