Another round of flooding is likely Monday as a storm system moves through the New Jersey region, forecasters say.

The National Weather Service says a general two to four inches of rain fell throughout the area on Saturday into early Sunday.

Moderate to heavy rain is set to move through the area from late Monday morning through the evening hours.

And that’s a concern for the forecasters, who say that the additional rainfall on already saturated ground and swelling inland waterways could result in additional flooding issues.

Minor tidal flooding is also likely at the Jersey Shore during the oceanfront high tide between 9 and 10 a.m. Monday and back bay areas later in the morning and early afternoon.

A Coastal Flooding Advisory statement says up to one foot of saltwater inundation above the ground level is possible in vulnerable areas.

Winds will begin to increase during the afternoon, with gusts possibly peaking around 45 miles per hour through the evening.
