Heavy rain moves across New Jersey; flash flooding possible

Posted: Updated:

Heavy bouts of rain are moving across the state, causing some flash flooding concerns in parts of New Jersey.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says that the rain is expected to last until around 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. before clearing out.

The storms will bring heavy rain and strong winds. Flash flood watches are in effect for portions of northern New Jersey. Curren says that flooding may occur on state roadways, so drivers should use caution.

Curren says that coastal flooding should not be as big of a concern as originally thought. Curren says that the winds should turn to a westerly direction by tonight, which should prevent much coastal flooding in shore communities.
