heavy thunderstorm facing N.J on Wednesday

The National services for weather forecasting said the Passaic River is currently experiencing moderate flooding due to the last thunderstorm that hit the city badly. Also, some parts of the Rockway and the Wanaque River are close to the flood stage.

Given the very saturated soils from last week’s heavy rainfall, this poses at least some potential for flooding,” – National Weather services.

Still, the officials are more concerned about the coming thunderstorm threats accompanying damaging wind breeze. They further said they have not decided to issue flash flood watches for now until Wednesday afternoon. 

According to the predictions made for the week, there is a slight chance of rain on Thursday. However, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday would be pleasant but dry.
