Unseasonably warm & humid ahead of the storm. While instability is greater to our south don't be surprised to see a few gusty thunderstorms later this evening, especially over New Jersey. @abc7ny pic.twitter.com/CIRk5O3qfA
2 to 5 inches of rain are expected throughout the area with locally higher amounts that could range between 4 to 6 inches. The intense rainfall could result in flooding issues in low-lying and poor drainage areas.
Travel could be difficult across parts of the area especially where water ponds on roadways.
