The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for Bucks and Montgomery Counties as “prolonged and heavy downpours” as well as thunderstorms are in the forecast through Thursday morning.
The wind advisory and flash flood watch started Wednesday afternoon and lasts until Thursday morning.
The weather service says:
“A slow-moving and potent cold front will tap the Gulf of Mexico and it is forecast to generate rainfall amounts of between 1 and 2½ inches. Locally higher amounts are possible in prolonged and heavy downpours. Moreover, thunderstorms may develop.
Prolonged and heavy downpours would cause flash flooding in some locations. Road flooding is likely. Since the ground is frozen just below the surface and plants are taking in very little water, heavy rainfall will not be absorbed.”
It is expected to be an unseasonably warm day on Thursday, too, into the mid- to high-40s. But it will feel like winter again by Friday and for the weekend when temperatures will once again drop to the freezing mark.
