    A low pressure system in the Ohio Valley Wednesday morning will track into the area early Thursday, delivering heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms, forecasters say.

    The greatest threat is in far South Jersey, according to a Hazardous Weather Outlook issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ. 

    Storms are expected to arrive after 2 a.m. Thursday. 

    “This heavy rain may result in pockets of brief poor drainage flooding near dawn Thursday,” the outlook advises. “There is also a small possibility for strong wind gusts and frequent cloud to ground lightning, especially in northeastern Maryland, Delaware, and far southern New Jersey near dawn Thursday.”

    Remaining unsettled with a chance of showers and thunderstorms during the day Thursday, conditions improve late, according to the service. 

    Friday through Sunday looks pleasant.
