Thunderstorms and heavy rains could come back with fury Thursday afternoon in New Jersey, with predictions of rainfall of up to 3 inches of rain, which triggered a flash watch for much of l & # 39; state.
The National Meteorological Service reports that "torrential rains" are possible from this afternoon until Thursday at the end of the day, with some storms producing gusty winds and making the journey potentially difficult in the evening.
The biggest threat of heavy rain is between 16:00 and 16:00. and at midnight with wilting storms from west to east, the meteorological service said Thursday in its discussion of weather forecasts.
Flash flood monitoring will be in effect for 15 counties in New Jersey beginning at 2:00 pm. Only the counties of Sussex, Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland are not supervised. Forecasters say that urban areas and locations along small streams and streams are the areas most likely to be flooded.
The good news is that none of the rivers in New Jersey are close to the point of flood.
