Our long dry stretch spanning nearly 2 weeks has come to an end. A frontal system interacting with tropical moisture associated with former Tropical Storm Julia off the Southeast Coast is going to give us a good soaking on Monday. The potential for heavy rain is possible which could cause street flooding on Monday. However, the location of the heaviest rain is still in question. Most computer models have the heaviest rain to our west.

hrrr_apcpn_neus_18.pngHi-resolution model is giving us 1″-2″ of rain with the heaviest in Interior South Jersey over 2″+.

namconus_apcpn_neus_12a.pngAnother model shows generally under 1″ of rain with over 1″+ over much of Southern and Central NJ

Despite the tremendous weather, we do need the rain. The U.S. Drought Monitor currently has us in abnormally dry conditions with moderate drought conditions to our north.
