Severe weather alert issued for Morris, Sussex
The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for much of New Jersey, including Morris and Sussex counties.

A cold front approaching the coast from the west is expected to interact with the remnants of Tropical Storm Tammy, which is heading up the East Coast.

The interaction of these two weather-making systems over the central Appalachians and the northern mid-Atlantic region will lead to an increasing chance of showers Friday and possibly heavy rain at times Friday night.

The most likely time for heavy rainfall is late Friday into Friday night and possibly into early Saturday. Rainfall of 1 to 3 inches is possible.

However, the Weather Service notes that since North Jersey has been quite dry lately, large-scale flooding is not anticipated, and the larger rivers are likely to see only minor rises. It is more likely that Morris and Sussex counties will see nuisance type flooding of roads, urban areas, poor-drainage locations, and the smaller and quicker responding streams.

The Weather Service predicts that the merged systems will gradually move east out of the area Saturday.

However, low pressure will remain in the upper atmosphere over the east coast into early next week, meaning that conditions may be unsettled Sunday into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
