Forecasters are watching a Tropical Depression that could become a tropical storm today. Tropical Depression is still south of Florida right now and the National Weather Service is calling for the majority of the weather to stay to the west and hit in Pennsylvania. However, rain is still expected to fall in South Jersey. Anywhere from one to two inches of rain is possible, beginning late this afternoon into Thursday. A flood watch has been issued as a result of this storm, along with a high surf advisory. Most of the rain will be coming in advance of the actually storm itself. The eye of the storm is expected to move through the area sometime late Thursday or early Friday.
