Flash Flood Watch in Effect Until Noon Friday

The National Weather Service in Mt. Holly has issued a flash flood watch for Central New Jersey and Bucks County, Pa. The watch is in effect until noon Friday.

Showers and thunderstorms will become heavier and more widespread tonight and continue Friday morning before tapering off in the afternoon. Some of the storms will include “torrential rainfall” and cause flash flood threats, according to the National Weather Service.

Two inches of rain per hour is possible in some areas.

A flash flood watch means conditions may develop tat lead to flash flooding. Do not drive through flooded roadways. Six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles. It is never safe to drive or walk into flood waters.

Check back for updates, road closings and more as the storm progresses.
