    Gather your umbrellas and rain boots, because you’re in for a wet day on Thursday and the heavy rain could stick with us off and on through Friday.

    A flood watch is in effect from the Canadian border all the way down to South Carolina with remnants of tropical storm Nicole likely to hit Philadelphia.

    For southern Delaware, only two inches of rain within a six hour period is needed for flooding. Central New Jersey and the  Philadelphia area needs five to six inches of rain for flooding.

    NBC10 Meteorologist Glenn "Hurricane" Schwartz says we will get at least two inches and could get up to six.
