National Weather Service Issues Flood Warning

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a hazardous weather outlook stating there is a “low chance of flash flooding” this week.

Local rivers are not expected to flood, the outlook states.

The threat stems from a “slight risk” of severe thunderstorms hitting the area Friday afternoon into Saturday. A cold front is forecast to move into the region then.

The outlook was issued for Northwestern New Jersey, including Passaic County.
