Heavy rain

A heavy rain with scattered thunderstorms is streamlining off of the Atlantic Ocean and gradually moves towards northward into northern New Jersey. Isolated thunderstorms are also expected Friday and Saturday yet Sunday promises to be sunny with only a 10 percent chance of rain and a high of almost 80 degrees. A chance remains over the next few days for some locally heavy downpours to initiate some flash flooding of roadways and streams.

The threat of showers and thunderstorms, especially in the afternoons, will remain and high temps will reach near and exceed 70ยบ. A few breaks of sunshine will become more possible as well especially on Friday. Saturday will definitely see a return to at least partial sunshine, however, there is still probably going to be afternoon scattered showers/T-storms developing with highs in the mid-upper 70s. Hopefully by Sunday we can eliminate the threat of afternoon showers/storms. I'm calling for mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid-upper 70s at this moment.
