NEW YORK (WABC) -- In this edition of Eyewitness News Extra Time, we discuss the flood concerns heading into Tuesday's winter storm that is poised to impact the Tri-State area.

As many gear up for round two of what's expected to be a one-two punch of weather this week, flood warning is once again threatening parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

On Tuesday, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy declared a State of Emergency effective 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

In New York City, Mayor Eric Adams activated the city's flash flood emergency plan.

Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh joined 'Extra Time' to discuss how the city is preparing after the last storm left several parts of the area underwater.

A Flood Watch has already been issued for New Jersey and parts of New York and Pennsylvania ahead of the storm late Tuesday into early Wednesday. The combination of 2"-4" of rain along with saturated ground and melting snowpack could mean particularly widespread flooding.

Paterson Mayor spoke to Eyewitness News Meteorologist Jeff Smith about what Tuesday's storm could bring to the city and across the Tri-State.
