Hurricane Zeta - Octobre 28, 2020 5pm map

A Flood Watch is in effect for all of Delaware as the remnants of Hurricane Zeta are expected to blast through the Mid-Atlantic on Thursday.

The National Weather Service says 2-4 inches of rain is expected, with road and small stream flooding possible.

Rain is forecast to start in the early-morning hours on Thursday, and continue into early Friday.

Contrary to a tropical system, a chill could be left in Zeta's wake, with the possibility of a frost or freeze, especially in northern Delaware on Friday night with temperatures dropping to, or below, freezing.

After hitting coastal Louisiana on Wednesday evening as a Category 2 hurricane, the core of the decaying storm is projected to pass through Sussex County in the Thursday evening timeframe with estimated winds of 15-25 miles per hour and gusts of up to 30 miles per hour.
