Meteorologist James Gregorio said the storm will produce 2-4 inches of rain. Flash flood watch is in effect for most of the state until 5 p.m. Flash flood warnings are in effect for some counties.
The storm subsides throughout the day, but the northeastern corner of the state will still feel impacts in terms of wind and rain all day and night. These winds can shatter tree branches and utility poles. Power outages and property damage will be a concern.
Flooding will also be a possibility. New Jersey residents should exercise caution while driving and avoid flooded roads. The storm will produce widespread flash floods inland.
There is a high risk of heavy rains and flash floods, as well as a medium risk of coastal flooding and damaging winds.
The storm is expected to dissipate by Wednesday. Wednesday will see mostly cloudy skies with temperatures in the 60s. Wednesday night will be partly cloudy with temperatures in the mid 40s.
Thursday will start partly cloudy, with temperatures in the upper 50 degrees. Clouds will continue Thursday evening with temperatures around 40 degrees.
More rain is possible by Friday and Saturday.
