A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 6 AM Thursday morning for Sussex, Southampton, Franklin, Bertie, Hertford, and Northampton(NC)

Showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain are expected to persist through this evening with additional rain chances after midnight due to deep moisture ahead of a slow moving low pressure system.

Flooding due to poor drainage in urban and rural areas may develop quickly. Additionally tributaries and main stem rivers are expected to rise as a result of heavy rain upstream. Be prepared for possible impacts to travel, including road closures or detours in low lying areas and near small streams if flooding develops.
