Flood Watch: 1-3 Inches of Rain Likely in Nazareth Area Thursday

Brace yourself for another very soggy day as a strong low pressure system brings heavy rain to Nazareth Thursday and into the night.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for 10 a.m. Thursday through 6 a.m. Friday for Northampton County as a strong low pressure system brings us another day of heavy rain.

Expect one to three inches of rain Thursday into Thursday night from showers and thunderstorms. The high will be near 74.

The Weather Service says it won't take much rain to produce flooding since creeks and streams are already high from rain we had Monday and last Friday.

Around Nazareth, Upper Nazareth and Lower Nazareth, that means the same old places will get some flooding and maybe even much more.

You usually see puddles after heavy rains leaving Wegmans while getting ready to cross Route 248 into the Northampton Crossings shopping center.

Some Nazareth Patch Facebook readers mentioned that people should be mindful of the Shoeneck Creek spilling over and that there's very bad flooding in Upper Nazareth Township on Tatamy Road where the Intermediate School is located.

If you see high water or flooding in your area, tell us in the comments section below and post your photos to this story.

Forecasters expect a significant rise in the Delaware River but it should stay within its banks.

The storm system will affect New Jersey, Delaware and northeastern Maryland in addition to eastern Pennsylvania.

The weather should improve Friday with partly sunny skies.

Expect sunny or partly sunny days this weekend with highs in the upper 70s.
