However, a strong cold front will cross the region on Monday. • River flooding is not expected. • There is a chance of some minor urban and poor drainage flooding. • Expect 1-2 inches of beneficial rain with isolated higher amounts of 3-4 inches possible. Best chance for heavy rain along and east of I-95 corridor.

    5. Flash Flood Potential • Graph on left shows that 3-4 inches or more of rain in 3 hours would be required in most areas to cause flash flooding. • Only 1-2 inches of storm total rain expected in most areas, with a small chance of isolated higher amounts possible. • There is a chance of some minor urban and poor drainage flooding. • Flash flooding is not expected.
