(PIX11 WEATHER CENTER) --Several low pressure systems will ride along stalled out frontal boundary in our area continuing keep the risk for more showers through tomorrow. These waves of low pressure will bring copious amounts of rain in a short amount of time keeping the chance of flash flooding across the region. Many of these areas have already received over 2” of rain adding insult to injury.

Most of the heavy torrential downpours have been down in Central New Jersey where the stationary cold front cuts through. That being said the rest of the region hasn’t been left unscathed. Parts of Long Island and areas north of the city has had few bouts of heavy rain this evening.

The region as a whole will continue to deal with periods of rain with locally heavy downpours through at least tomorrow afternoon. Eventually high pressure will move in Tuesday night diminishing the threat for rain.

Temperatures tonight into tomorrow will remain on the cool side sticking around in the 50s. On Wednesday, the sun will break bringing temperatures back into the mid upper 60s. The 70s will return by Thursday with partly to mostly sunny skies.
