North Jersey

From 2 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, a flash flood watch has been issued for areas of Bergen, Essex, Passaic, Hudson and Union counties.

There is a chance for small showers throughout Friday morning and afternoon while temperatures hit in the mid-70s and there will be high humidity. Rain will begin to fall heavily towards Friday evening and a thunderstorm could roll through. An inch is expected locally but it could be higher in some areas.

The rainy weather will carry into Saturday with showers and another possible thunderstorm. Temperatures will be a little cooler, in the mid-60s, and another half inch of rain is possible. Saturday night, temperatures should hit the low 50s and the rain should clear up with only a minor chance at showers.

 

Rain is expected to begin late morning for South Jersey while Central Jersey will see rain in the mid-afternoon as wind from the south pushes the storm north. Areas near the shoreline will be around 10 degrees cooler than further west, where temperatures will hover in the mid-70s.

Heavy rain will begin late Friday night and continue into Saturday and high winds and a chance of a thunderstorm. The heavier rain will taper off into Saturday with on and off showers throughout the day. Flooding can be expected during high tide on Friday.

Temperatures will hit the low 70s while the temperature along the coastline will be cooler once again.

Sunday will be partly sunny with chances of showers in the morning. Temperatures will fall into the mid-60s.
