Will It Ever Stop Raining?
If you’re heading outside, make sure to bring an umbrella!
Some coastal communities and parts of Central and South Jersey have been pounded by heavy rains in recent days, and additional scattered downpours are expected.
State climatologist at Rutgers Dave Robinson says more rain is heading our way right through tomorrow evening, so “the threat still will remain for some stream and flash flooding on roadways- particularly in those areas that have seen it already.”
He says fortunately “there’s no major flood threat for the rivers right now and there shouldn’t be for the remainder of this very damp episode over the next couple of days."
The heaviest rains earlier today fell eastern Ocean and Burlington Counties, where the National Weather Service says up to 8 inches of precipitation was recorded, and on Route 35 in Lavallette and the Ortley Beach section of Toms River, flood waters were up to 3 feet deep were reported .
A flash flood watch is in effect through tomorrow for southwestern New Jersey.
