Stormy evening ahead for entire Jersey Shore

    Following torrential downpours in portions of Monmouth County Monday afternoon, a line of storms will impact the remainder of the Jersey Shore through the evening hours. 

    At 7:50 p.m., the storms stretch from southwestern New Jersey into Maryland and are heading generally to the northeast, according to radar imagery.

    Radar trends indicate that heavy rain will continue to stream over the portions of southern Monmouth County and northern Ocean County that saw over four inches of rain today, spurring roadway flooding and traffic problems. A Flash Flood Warning for that area is set to expire at 8:30 p.m. but could be extended. 

    Some storms are currently severe and could retain strength as they proceed to the coastline. Strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and frequent lightning are also possible, according to the National Weather Service. 

    The activity will then decrease later this evening, but Tuesday will feature similar stormy conditions, forecasters advise. 

    Drier air will then begin to filter in on Wednesday, according to NOAA.
