While most areas that had rain received generally under a .5″, there were isolated reports in New Jersey of over 2″ that produced localized flooding. Route 17 in Hasbrouck Heights was shut down for a period and 2 water rescues were done in Carlton Hill and South Hackensack in Bergen County.

Showers now are diminishing this evening and is expected to be dry into the overnight. With all the rain we’ve had today and the fact that its very humid, some areas could get some patchy fog by daybreak. Lows will be around 70.

The unsettled activity is not over yet for tomorrow. A series of disturbances will move through the area and could spark a few isolated showers. It won’t be as widespread as today, but the same areas in New Jersey and Upstate New York that had showers today will have the highest chance of getting another round. Lowest chances of showers will be across Long Island. Highs will be around 80 degrees

With the Labor Day weekend around the corner now, the forecast is looking okay for at least 2 of the 3 days. It’ll be quite humid on Saturday and Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds. A couple of afternoon showers and t-storms will be possible on Labor Day itself.
