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 Michele Powers says today the region is beginning to dry out after a storm dumped about an inch of rain in south Jersey to nearly 5 inches in parts of Morris County.
Powers says there's major flooding in Pompton Lakes and Pompton Plains, and moderate to 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 before the water subsides.
Meanwhile, Willowbrook Mall located on Willowbrook Boulevard has been shut down today until further notice due to flooding.
High temperatures are forecasted to remain in the 50s for most of the day with highs reaching between 53 and 58 degrees.
