Flash Flood Watch Issued

06/26/2013 07:18PM ● By Anonymous

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for the Midland Park area on Thursday afternoon through Friday, due to a slow moving low pressure system coming from Ohio. The storm is expected to bring heavy showers and thunderstorms Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. In addition, the setup is conducive to bands of heavy rain showers and thunderstorms with localized rainfall rates that could exceed two inches an hour, causing urban and small stream flash flooding. Main stem rivers are expected to rise, but not exceed their borders.

Prior to the storm, on Wednesday, strong and possibly severe Thunderstorms are possible in the area, and might also cause flooding. Remember, if you see standing or rushing water in the road, "turn around, don't drown."
