The NJOEM continues to monitor conditions and work closely with county and local emergency management partners regarding weather conditions to occur tomorrow.

We received the following briefing from the NWS:

A strong storm system will bring the threat of severe weather and flooding to our region on Thursday.  Due to the expected heavy rainfall, both flash flooding and river flooding are expected.  There is also the threat of a significant severe weather outbreak with the threat of tornadoes, strong damaging winds, and large hail. <br /More information can be found in the attached briefing package. 

The Briefing package is available at http://www.erh.noaa.gov/phi/briefing/packages/current_briefing.pdf

The executive summary from the briefing package is included below.

<bigA strong storm system will bring the potential for more very heavy rainfall and active severe weather to our region on Thursday, June 13th. Given our recent heavy rainfall, any additional significant rainfall brings the threat of widespread flash flooding and river flooding. Rainfall amounts of one to four inches are expected, with the higher amounts expected over northern portions of our forecast area. Based on current rainfall forecasts, moderate river flooding is likely for multiple river basins across the region. Major river flooding is possible. There is a threat of a significant severe weather event for our region, with the main focus over the DelMarVa, southern NJ, and southeast PA. Tornadoes, strong damaging winds, and large hail are all threats to our region on Thursday.
