Heavy Rain In Parts of South Jersey This AM

Some parts of South Jersey have picked up a couple of inches of rain last night as multiple rounds of storms have moved through since 7 PM last night. The most recent batch is currently just east of Millville and Vineland, tracking across Hammonton and Atlantic County. Flood advisories are out in the green shaded areas of Atlantic, SE Burlington, and Southern Ocean Counties until 8:15 AM for these storms as they move east and northeast.  These areas have had multiple heavy rain events this summer -- especially in Southeast Burlington County and Southern Ocean County -- so some localized ponding of water and street flooding is a realistic possibility to our south and east this morning.

Closer to home, we're dry in the city but it's still muggy out as we start the day -- temperatures are in the 70's.  We'll remain muggy for much of the morning hours but the main rain and thunder threat resides generally south of the city.  A shower can't be ruled out locally, though, as the front slides through later on.  We'll have an update on what the rest of the day will bring later on.
