The afternoon storms will affect Monmouth and Ocean counties where a Flood Advisory is in effect along with Burlington, Middlesex and Mercer counties until 6 p.m. for heavy rain falling at a rate of 1-2 inches per hour that could cause flooding in poor drainage areas.

An earlier Flash Flood Advisory was canceled.

Parts of NJ Transit’s Gladstone Branch is flooded prompting substitute bus service between Gladstone & Bernardsville in both directions. There are delays of 30-45 min. delays between Bernardsville & Summit. As of 4 p.m., inbound service will be suspended between Bernardsville & Summit for the remainder of the day.

Newark Liberty is reporting delays of at least 75 minutes while Philadelphia has reports of up to an hour.

There is some flooding between exit 7A and 8A of the New Jersey Turnpike slowing traffic.

During the morning storms lightning struck a house on Somerset Avenue in Bridgewater from this morning’s storms. The Star Ledger reports two homes in Summit and one in New Brunswick were also struck by lightning.

A cold front is pushing towards New Jersey that will lower the humidity for the weekend. It could also bring additional thunderstorms on Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. The weekend is expected to be near perfect with sunny skies, temperatures in the 80s and low humidity.
