A Hazardous Weather Outlook has been issued for Northern New Jersey. We currently have a flash flood watch in effect from 12 p.m. Sunday until 4 a.m. Monday. We have a wind advisory in effect from 6 a.m. tomorrow (Monday) until 12 p.m. 

The weather team informs us that we can anticipate heavier rain showers to move in between 9-11 a.m. this morning, with periods of moderate-heavy rainfall expected through the day into Sunday night. Rains finally start tapering off by early Monday morning, between 4-6 a.m. The heaviest showers are expected to occur this afternoon and evening between 4-10 p.m. 

They have not ruled out an isolated thunderstorm this afternoon, but chances are only about 30 percent. Total rainfall into tomorrow morning will likely be between 1.50-3.00,” with locally higher amounts to 4-5” not out of the question.

These rainfall amounts will likely cause widespread general flooding, with isolated flash flooding. The other threat will be winds; winds will gradually increase late Sunday night and continue into Monday with sustained winds potentially reaching 20-30 mph, common gusts could reach 35-45 mph, with isolated peak gusts to 45-55 mph possible. 

We have been in contact with our partners from Jersey Central Power & Light (JCP&L) and they are also closely monitoring the weather.

Customers are reminded to call 1-888-LIGHTSS (1-888-544-4877) or to click the “Report Outage” link on to report power outages. JCP&L reminds customers to stay away from downed wires, even if they believe they are no longer carrying electricity.
