NEW YORK (PIX11) — Flood warnings continue as many rivers are have spilled over their banks from the 4-6″ of rain that drenched the area Wednesday.

The Raritan River has crested and is expected to go below flood stage later tonight. The Passaic river is still rising this evening and will crest early tomorrow morning. That river isn’t expected to go below flood stage until Saturday morning.

A lingering shower is still possible tonight as a cold front has to pass through the area this evening. The showers will only be scattered about so additional flooding is not expected along rivers and low lying areas. Afterwards, skies will turn partly cloudy with temperatures dropping into the lower 50s.

A tranquil day is on tap for Friday with partly to mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be mild once again with highs reaching 70 degrees. There could be a shower on Saturday but the bulk of the day will be dry with partly sunny skies.

Highs will continue to be at around 70. A quick moving system moves in on Sunday but it will be a far cry from what we had yesterday. Temperatures will be a tad cooler with all the cloud cover expected.
