WARREN, NJ - Less than three weeks after the last significant flooding, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for much of the Northern half of New Jersey, including Warren Township during Friday afternoon into the late evening.
 
Localized  thunderstoms could drop signifcant precipitation in short periods of time.  Flash flooding is likely around streams, small rivers and in urban areas if rainfall during any six hour period is one to two inches or more per hour.
 
In addition to the Flash Flood Watch, the service warns that both morning and evening commutes could be affected by heavy rain. Be prepared and anticipate flooding where it typically occurs.   
 
 
With all the rain expected, the fish may be jumping on the hooks at Warren's Fishing Derby this weekend.
