Flash Flood threat nw NJ se NYS now and possible flood threat linger into Tuesday

Recommended Posts

Wantage NJ 4 sw (8 s High Point)...since 238PM-501PM 2.5".  Since the 17th 4.85"  Some residents pumping water in the nw NJ hills.  another couple of hours of off and on TR+.  I'd be careful crossing any flooded roadways where brooks or streams are involved. NWS posted a FFW mid afternoon.  We don't often flood up here in the nw NJ hills but there's a good chance of a flash flood problem.  STP's look a little low to me as of 5P.  Walt  506P/22

Attaching wunder map... several reports 2.5-3" today, most of it this afternoon and here at our house now past 2.85 since 238PM.  This has to be causing some brook and small stream flooding in these hilly areas.  Bad possibilities for campers near small streams.  I know of folks using pumps to lower water here in our neighborhood to minimize flood risk.  527PM

Wantage NJ 4 sw at 557PM: 3.07" since 238P. 3.13 for the day. 5.42 since the 17th. Glad its easing at 557PM. Digital storm total and PHI internet STP's might be a touch low? Not much, but definitely a minimum from my vantage point here. Wont write again til (if) we pass 3.5 for the day. 602P/22.

Heaviest rain looks off to the west & south west of highland lakes.(in Utah)

nice dump of pure h20 confirmed in many towns. Radar is impressive.

Yet another flash flood watch posted for much of NJ, with some amounts of 5" possible!!  Have the criteria changed this summer, or are we really seeing this many instances of flooding?

If this trend continues, we'll have 36" snowstorms hitting central park this winter!

Not to worry, that’s way beyond the CPK measure limit. As always ....
