Heavy rain in and around the five boroughs is making its way into Sussex, Passaic and Bergen counties.

The slow moving system is slowly moving north, with wind from the Atlantic slowly picking up. Rain will be on and off for the next several days. Combined with heavy winds, flooding is expected for coastal areas.

Coastal flood advisories are in effect for much of the tri-state area as the storm makes it’s way north.
