Weather Update: Flooding begins across NJ

EDISON - Water continues to fill already swollen rivers and streams, especially in the northern part of the state after a storm soaked New Jersey with heavy rains.

News 12 New Jersey meteorologist Samantha Augeri says rainfall totals range from about an inch in south Jersey to nearly 5 inches in parts of Morris County.

Augeri says there's major flooding in Pompton Lakes, Pompton Plains and Lodi and moderate and minor flooding around northern and central New Jersey.

Emergency management officials are closely watching the Passaic River because flooding continues in Lincoln Park, Little Falls and Wayne.

Major flooding is also expected along the Passaic, Pequannock, Ramapo and Pompton rivers by the time the water subsides.

High temperatures are forecasted to remain in the 50s for most of the day with highs reaching between 53 and 58 degrees.
