With the rainiest day and third rainiest month ever behind us, August is getting off to a similar start: The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the region from 10 a.m. to midnight today.

RainThe watch covers Camden County as well as much of South Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, northern Delaware and northeastern Maryland.

According to the watch:

SEVERAL BANDS OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WITH HEAVY RAIN ARE EXPECTED TO OCCUR TODAY. WHILE GENERAL AMOUNTS SHOULD AVERAGE ONE TO ONE AND A HALF INCHES, SOME LOCALIZED AMOUNTS REACHING THREE TO FOUR INCHES ARE POSSIBLE. THE HEAVIER RAIN POTENTIAL SHOULD START IN PENNSYLVANIA AND MARYLAND LATER THIS MORNING AND THEN SPREAD INTO THE REST OF THE WATCH AREA BY THE MIDDLE OF THE AFTERNOON.

Friday’s forecast calls for sunny skies and a high in the mid 80s. More showers are possible Saturday, while the high temperature should remain in the mid 80s. Sunday and Monday look to be clear with highs in the low 80s.
