(Philadelphia) -- Southeast Pennsylvania faces another day of flash flood threats.

A flash flood watch is in effect through this evening for Berks, Carbon, Montgomery,  Lehigh, Bucks and Monroe counties.

Forecasters say showers and thunderstorms are possible following a weekend in which four to six inches of rain fell.

Parts of the state could see an additional one to two inches of new rainfall in less than an hour.

Such downpours can cause flash flooding.
