TRENTON - With rainfall across the state melting ice and snow, New Jersey's rivers are expected to see some flooding.

The Coast Guard cut a channel into the icy Delaware River along the shores of Trenton, as a way to keep the water moving while decreasing its potential for flooding.

The Delaware River is expected to crest around 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Water levels along the Raritan River were low Saturday afternoon. When the river crests at 7 a.m. Sunday, the National Weather Service graphs predict only minor flooding.
In nearby Bound Brook, where the Green Brook and Ambrose Brook combine and often flood, water levels have also remained low.
