A Tornado Watch is in effect for parts of NJ until 10pm (map above). Any thunderstorms that become severe have the potential to produce a tornado. A Watch means just that-we are watching the situation. If a tornado warning is issued either radar has indicated rotation in the thunderstorm or a tornado has been spotted. Please check the radar frequently and adhere to possible warnings.
This is all due to the remnants of Ida that will affect our region through late tonight.
As you can see by the potential rainfall map above there will be a heavy axis of flooding rains for the Northern two thirds of our region. 2″-6″+ of rain is possible. Needless to say, we do not need anymore rain. The grounds are saturated and rivers and streams remain high. The potential for flooding is high. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire region. Flooding of streets, basements, streams and main stem rivers is at a high potential. Never drive through a flooded roadway you don’t know how deep the water is. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN.
The storm will pull out of the area on Thursday morning. Rain will end by sunrise and it will be a bright, cool and breezy September day. Readings will be close to ten degrees below the average high of the lower 80s.
Friday will be a gem as cool high pressure influences the region. Abundant sunshine is expected with low humidity.
The Labor Weekend will make most smile! High pressure will dominate resulting in mainly sunny skies and comfortable readings.
Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.
