The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning in effect for various parts of the state Tuesday night.
The warning is in effect through 8:30 p.m. for Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties, and parts of Cumberland County, and parts of central and northern New Jersey are under a warning through 10:15 p.m.
The warning is in effect for northern Ocean and Monmouth counties through 7:15 p.m.
Atlantic County, southeast Burlington County and Ocean County in southern New Jersey, including Toms River, remain under the Flash Flood Warning through 10:45 p.m.
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning remains in effect for the whole state through 9 p.m.
