The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Lower Bucks County that will be in effect until Tuesday (7-24-18), at 4:00 a.m.
A Flash Flood Watch means “the environment is conducive for producing precipitation that may lead to flash flooding,” National Weather Service meteorologist Alex Staarmann said.
A more severe Flash Flood Warning means flash flooding is expected or already happening and people need to act to protect themselves and their property.
Because the NWS issued a watch instead of a warning, Staarmann said people can go through their daily routine with few adjustments.
“Just proceed with caution and just be aware,” Staarmann explained. “Especially if you’re in any sort of flood-prone area.”
There is at least a 60 percent chance of precipitation until Thursday night, according to the NWS. Up to two inches of rain could fall this Wednesday.
“Be aware and be mindful of heavy showers moving over and heavy rain persisting for a considerable amount of time,” Staarmann said. “Flash flooding may develop quickly and people may need to take action.”
