Here's what NJ can expect from the powerful coastal storm

Rain will continue to pour throughout the day and into Monday morning, according to AccuWeather.

Complicating matters will be Tropical Storm Philippe. Winds could gust to hurricane force from Westerly to Narragansett to Newport to New Bedford to Cape Cod.and all the coastal communities in between.

Showers arrive before the main area of torrential rain tonight.

Parts of the state already received over 5 inches of rain this past week.

The northern portion of Cayuga County is under the same flash flood watch as southern Cayuga. "Most flood deaths occur in vehicles".

Winds out of the northwest are forecast from 20 to 35 miles per hour with gusts as high as 45 to 50 miles per hour at times. During this same time frame the wind will start to pick up and will be gusty, southwest 20-30mph with isolated power outages possible. Urban and small stream flooding is possible.

In addition, the weather service noted, strong winds can make driving hard - especially if you have a high-profile vehicle - in open areas and on elevated roads and bridges.

Temperatures will be in the 60s today and stay around 60 tonight.

The warning will end around 6 a.m.
