NEW JERSEY — A flash flood watch has been issued for parts of New Jersey until midnight on Tuesday.

The watch includes the following northeast counties: 

  • Bergen

The expected downpours will add to the already-flooded areas in N.J. after heavy rain and thunderstorms loomed over the tri-state throughout the weekend.

The NWS recommends you follow the following flash flood safety tips:

  • Do not drive in flooded roads
  • Do not drive through flowing water
  • Follow a ‘turn around, don’t drown’ approach in flooded areas
  • Do not try to walk, swim, or play in flood waters
