NEW YORK (PIX11) — Flood Warnings remain to be effect across numerous rivers and creeks in New Jersey and in the northern suburbs. As much as two to four inches of rain fell on Thursday causing rivers to overflow their banks and cause flooding.
The Hackensack and Millstone were noted on Friday night as those two rivers continue to cause moderate flooding for the surrounding communities that they flow through. Numerous rescues were performed because of the tremendous amount of water that the storm poured into the region. The good news is that they have already crested, but it may take until Saturday before they finally go below flood stage.
As for Friday night, a weak disturbance will cross through during the overnight hours. While the evening will be quiet, there could be a few scattered showers after midnight. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s.
An upper-level low will shift from the Great Lake to New England on Saturday. That will cause skies to feature a mix of sun and clouds. A few passing showers may develop especially during the latter part of the day. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s.
Sunday should feature a bit more sunshine as the upper-level disturbance moves further away from our neck of the woods. There will be a good northwesterly wind around and that will cool temperatures back down into the lower 50s.
Heading into next week, a warming trend develops. Temperatures will climb back toward 60 degrees on Monday. A warm front cloud brings a shower early on Tuesday, but it will help boost temperatures closer to 70 degrees.
