The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Northern New Jersey.NWS

The current data suggests that the combination of heavy rain and continuing snow melt may lead to some poor drainage with potential flooding.

Dense fog also is possible, especially this afternoon and evening. Rainfall total for today has been estimated at 0.5 – 1 inch.

While these amounts would not normally be a concern, the rainfall on top of the recent snow melt may create issues.

Please be mindful of storm drains that are blocked by snow piles which could potentially create roadway ponding and flooding.
