North of the frontal boundary that won’t go away, heavy rains have produced flash flooding over parts of Central New Jersey, the area of rain responsible for that continues to plod slowly eastward across Southern New England and Long Island. While all this has been going on the southern half of New Jersey has seen temperatures climb into the 80s again. This area has been getting the daytime heating again and the Storm Prediction Center has responded with a severe thunderstorm watch for Central & South Jersey, Southern Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.

We aren’t done with this stalled frontal boundary by a long shot. Wednesday brings another wave though this looks to be less robust than today’s It will be the same story all over again but thunderstorms will be a bit more scattered around in clusters so it will be a case of hit or miss. Then Thursday we have another chance for severe weather as the last of the waves intensifies and moves into the Ohio Valley and then across Pennsylvania and NY State.
