More Snow Coming: Threat Of Flooding
WARREN, NJ - More snow is on the way. Yet another winter storm will impact the area Tuesday morning.
Snowfall accumulations are predicted from two to four inches around and north of the I-78 corridor, according to a forecast issued by the National Weather Service Sunday.
On Wednesday, temperatures are expected to rise to 50 degrees, with relatively mild temperatures lasting through next weekend.
Flooding will be a threat once temperatures rise well above freezing. Anticipate road flooding as the temperature rises.
"Warmer temperatures will sound good to many, but for those in snowy locations, be prepared for significant snow melt," tweeted Gary Szatkowski, meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ.
Rain is forecasted for later in the week, adding to the flooding threat in areas with ice and snow clogged drains.
