NEW YORK (PIX11) – The heaviest rain hit Friday afternoon as residents prepared for what was only the fourth named storm in June ever to soak the Tri-State area. Total amount of rain during the day was around 1-1.5”. The night time will feature an addition 1-3”. Flash flood watches continue to be in effect through tomorrow.
The heart of the system will be between 4 p.m. and midnight. The rain will taper off to showers overnight and linger into Saturday. Flooding, because of storm surge will be minimal, but flooding in low lying areas and in certain rivers like the Passaic and Ramapo will be a possibility.
Small streams will overflow their banks and ponding for the area roadways will be an item. Stay tuned to PIX 11 News for the latest and visit the Dodge Weather Center for up-to-the-minute radar, forecasts and temperatures.
