We still have 7-8″ of snow in southern section of western New Jersey. the warm weather of the last few days has allowed some of it to melt slowly chich is what we want. But Wednesday will bring about 1″ of rain to western New Jersey.

The NWS has issued a flood watch for southern portions of western New Jersey. Make sure storm drains a leaders from gutters are cleared so rain has someplace to go instead of your basement! The flood watch could be extended further north.
