    The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for the Jersey Shore as heavy rain continues to move through the region.

    According the advisory, the rainfall will cause minor flooding. It’s in effect until noon today.

    “Rainfall totals of an inch or two are expected this morning, with locally higher amounts. The heavy rain will cause flooding on roadways and in areas of poor drainage,” the advisory states.

    It continues:

    “Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely. Move to higher ground.”

    A cold front is slowly tracking across the region. Combined with a plume of tropical moisture spreading from south to north, periods of locally heavy rainfall will continue throughout the day. 

    Precipitation will begin tapering off late tonight into tomorrow morning. Clouds will linger tomorrow, clearing by Wednesday.
