New Jersey is in for another inch of rain today as another round of precipitation heads our way.

Nearly two inches of rain fell in areas of south Jersey as of Sunday morning according to National Weather Service observations.

Rain will fall again across the state today and could be heavy at times in the afternoon according to meteorologist Alan Kasper. He expects a low pressure area to slow down as it approaches early Sunday making for another day of rain. The low will move off the coast on Monday.

The National Weather Service keeps a Flood Watch for central and north Jersey along Interstate 78 and north, also including Mercer and Middlesex counties through late Sunday night. 1-3 inches of rain could fall that would lead to flooding in poor drainage areas, urban areas and cause small streams to flood.

A Flood Warning was posted for eastern Monmouth County as the Swimming River in Red Bank remained above flood stage but was cresting. Parts of Somerset County were also under a Flood Warning as the Millstone River was approaching flood stage.

Thick fog also rolled into some coastal areas on Sunday morning of Monmouth and Ocean counties prompting a Dense Fog Advisory to be issued until 4 p.m.

NWS forecasters in a briefing about the weekend rain expect the Passaic, Raritan and Delaware Rivers to rise but not reach flood stage as their levels are already low.

Several roads were closed on Saturday night and early Sunday morning due to flooding including Route 9 in Woodbridge, Route 35 in Hazlet and Route 17 in Hasbrouck Heights.

The upcoming week looks to be partly sunny on average with above average temperatures in the 50s.
