It will continue to produce heavy rain for many overnight.

In New Jersey, there is a flash flood warning in Sussex and Warren counties until 2:45 a.m. Monday.

A flood watch is in effect across much of the region through Monday evening.

As CBS2’s Lonnie Quinn reports, the main concern with the storm is rain and flooding, rather than winds.

The latest tracks show the storm pushing toward the northwest corner of Connecticut before moving north and east.

This means the storm will be lingering in our area longer and moving slowly.

Bouts of heavy rain are expected to continue overnight into Monday.
