According to the NWS Mt. Holly Office, “A 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, minor river flooding is likely for multiple river
basins across the region. Moderate 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.”
