7:44 am
hour. so if you're picking up the heavy rain now, it should be lightening up or easing up a little bit within the next hour or so. unless you're up through here and the heaviest is still yet to come. everything from southwest to northeast behind this here, there is one more to the southwest of dc that gets through again during the late afternoon hours. here's the flood advisory. we actually have two of them. this first one for most of south jersey. the second one for the state of delaware. this is in effect until 10:00 a.m. where they've already picked up at least 2 inches of rain. minor flooding is occurring. bridgeton, vineland all in the advisory area, and this darker shade of green, a flood warning in effect until 1:00 this afternoon. this area here has picked up 3 inches of rain and it still continues to rain. these numbers are improving from when i first came in this morning when they were down to less than quarter of a mile but you get the idea.
