Flash Flood Watch in effect through late tonight

The National Weather Service has declared a flash flood warning for the area late Sunday afternoon until 6:15 p.m. due to heavy rains. It will still be a little on the brisk side with a westerly wind occasionally gusting around 20mph and high temperatures expected to top out in the low to mid 50s. The National Weather Service also advised people to prepare for strong winds and take shelter. Power outages are a real concern, especially considering leaves are still on the trees. Winds could gust over 60 miles per hour in this part of the state.

Rainfall totals are still being calculated in many communities, however, rainfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour were reported in some areas, causing many roadways to become flooded. As the low pressure system is deepening and strengthening and moving across New Jersey, a tight pressure gradient will form as high pressure well to our southwest tries to nose northeastward.

It will be partly sunny with a chance of rain on Friday and partly sunny, but drier, on Saturday and Sunday.
