Ridgewood Emergency Management Advisory: Flood Watch in effect for Bergen Co. area Tues. AM thru Late Tues. Night.

National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for Bergen Co. from Tues. morning through late Tues. night.

A slow moving Nor’Easter will pass through the area Tuesday. Rain will be heavy at times with 2 to 3 inches possible by the time the event ends Tues. night . . . with localized higher amounts.

High winds are also likely . . . 20 to 35 mph sustained winds with max. gusts 40 to 60 mph.

The main impact will be urban and poor drainage flooding . . . but some small rivers and streams across Northeast New Jersey and the Lower Hudson Valley may reach or exceed bankfull. This same region received 1 to 2 inches of rainfall just a couple of days ago.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
