Say goodbye to the intense heat, and hello to intense rain. A strong cold front will be pushing its way across New Jersey on Friday, paving the way for widespread rain showers and thunderstorms — some of which could produce torrential downpours and as much as 4 inches of rain.
The National Weather Service said the heavy downpours, similar to the ones that drenched parts of the state on Tuesday, could be intense enough to cause flash flooding on some local roads and highways. Forecasters say most parts of our region can expect 1 to 2 inches of rain throughout the day on Friday, but there could be some isolated amounts as high as 3 to 4 inches.
That’s why the weather service has issued a flash flood watch for most of northern and central New Jersey, effective from 2 a.m. Friday through early Friday afternoon.
