Radars this morning show last night’s rain has moved well to the north however new downpours developed across Central New Jersey this morning. Over the course of the day weather models show different outcomes regarding downpours and where they develop. Some favor the Hudson Valley while others show heavy rains over the Hudson Valley and New Jersey as well. Given we are north of a warm front I think the best approach is to just watch the radars. Weather models keep changing the profile of the heavy rains from run to run. Short term models remain highly volatile and unreliable. Downpours are capable of producing a quick 1 to 3 inches of rain if they sit around long enough. After the rains of the last 24 hours, it won’t take much to cause some flooding.
