Flash Flood Warnings More Rain Later Today

We are already waking up to Flash Flood Warnings over parts of Northern New Jersey and a slew of flood advisories, flood warnings, and coastal flood advisories. It is going to be that kind of a day with this first area of rain moving out likely to be followed by another round of heavy rain later today. Needless to say somebody is going to get clobbered with rainfall. Some areas today are going to see several inches of rain. The Flash Flood watch covers everyone from Southeastern Pennsylvania through most of New Jersey except the coastal counties, the Hudson Valley, NYC, Connecticut, and Long Island.

Take a look at these doppler rainfall estimates for the last 18 hours. Some areas have received 3 to 5 inches of rain already!

There really isn’t any change to the logic of the forecast right through Tuesday. With an upper low to the west and southerly flow aloft, plus a couple of waves of low pressure, the threat for downpours continues into the middle of next week. It doesn’t rain all the time but when it does, it pours. 4 day rainfall totals are likely to exceed 6 inches in some places. The HRRR drops at least half that amount today in some places.

HRRR RAINFALL THROUGH 11PM AUGUST 11, 2018

This is going to be a busy day with flood warnings and even the occasional severe thunderstorm so be cautious and pay attention to the radars.
