N.J. weather: Look out for flash flooding as thunderstorms threaten

0

The start of the work week looks to be a soggy one in the Garden State, with the National Weather Service placing most of the state under a flash food watch as a round of rainy weather moves into the region.

Flash flood watches are scheduled to begin between midnight and 2 a.m. for parts of Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Burlington, Somerset, Sussex, Warren, Essex, Bergen, Union and Hudson.

Forecasters say strong to severe thunderstorms remain possible as a cold front settles across the New York metro area, with the strongest storms expected to hit between 3 a.m. and noon Monday.

As temperatures drop, the weather service’s New York office has also issued a special weather statement warning of freezing rain and ice glazing in New Jersey’s northeast corner:

Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties remain under a coastal flood warning issued earlier Sunday.

Both the flash flood watches and the coastal flood warnings are scheduled to last through Monday afternoon, the weather service said.
