Another storm is affecting Middlesex and Monmouth counties with 40 MPH winds, downpours that could cause flooding on roads and poor drainage areas and cloud-to-ground lightning. Move indoors and do not seek shelter under trees.
More storms will likely head east as cells continue to form in central Pennsylvania and Maryland.
