Flood Watch

Flood Watch from 5AM until 7PM tomorrow. Be prepared to take action in the event that flooding develops.

* From late tonight through Friday evening

* Rainfall totals of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts

* Periods of moderate to heavy rain will occur from late tonight
through Friday. In the areas of heaviest rainfall, urban and
poor-drainage flooding is expected to occur. Given antecedent
wet conditions across the watch area, sensitive streams and
creeks will also be susceptible to flooding. Some river flooding
is also possible should the heaviest rainfall occur in the
associated basins, with the Passaic and Millstone Rivers most
at risk.


A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
