EDISON - Clusters of rain showers and thunderstorms that have hit parts of northern New Jersey will turn to steadier rain Sunday evening into Monday.

Storms packing frequent lightning and even some hail passed through several areas along the shore and in the northwestern part of the state.

Gusty winds, heavy rain, hail and lightning are possible as storms move through the area. Heavier rain will continue throughout the evening and into Monday.

Localized flooding is possible, especially in areas of poor drainage, as the rain picks up. The National Weather Service has issued a flood flood warning for several northern counties through 11 p.m. Sunday.

Temperatures will dip down into the 60s overnight for most of the state. Monday will see periods of rain with highs in the low-70s, and the rain will stick around into Tuesday, when temperatures  top out in the upper 60s.

The region is expected to dry out by Wednesday and Thursday
