FInal updates from NWS Mt. Holly and NWS NYC are below.
The NWS Mt. Holly executive summary is as follows:
- The threat for wide-spread severe weather across the NWS Mount Holly CWA has diminished. While an isolated severe thunderstorm cannot be ruled out, especially south of the C&D canal, no Severe Thunderstorm or Tornado watches or warnings are currently in effect for our area.
- Rain showers are still expected through the evening hours. However, since the threat of widespread heavy rain has diminished, the Flash Flood Watch has been discontinued.
The Briefing package is also available at: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/phi/briefing/packages/current_briefing.pdf
The NWS NYC summary is as follows:
An unusually strong low pressure system is forecast to continue moving east-southeast across Northern Pennsylvania this afternoon, Northern NJ this evening, and just Southeast of Long Island tonight.
Because this track has shifted north, the heaviest rain will be both north and south of the local area, leaving our local area with less rain than previous forecasts.
Our NWS office will be CANCELLING the Flood Watch for the entire local area with this afternoon’s forecast update.
However, because the low is further north, a developing line of heavy showers and thunderstorms will move east across the region this evening. A few storms could produce heavy rain and strong gusty winds – remaining below severe limits.
No other significant changes are planned with our afternoon forecast update.
