"Timeout. New Jersey's first news five fourteen chief meteorologist Dan's zero back, and Dan you said even after this weekend. One more chance of rain in two thousand eighteen that's right. And it's coming on New Year's Eve. So you're going to be out and about celebrating the new year bring your umbrella we are going to get wet yet. Again, the rain is here today bands of moderate to heavy rain will impact the state pretty much all day long. A flood watch in effect for almost all of New Jersey. Eighteen of our twenty one counties for some reason, Sussex, Warren and Cape May counties excluded. Not exactly sure why that watch goes until this evening again, it's going to be a wet day with rainfall totals ranging for about three quarters of an engine north jersey plus inches in south jersey, locally higher amounts possible.

That's from about Middlesex, Somerset hundred and counties on north from Monmouth, Mercer counties down south will see a steady rain pretty much through the afternoon in part of the evening as well. Floodings a concern forty. Plus mile an hour wind gusts possible. But at least it's all liquid highs mostly in the upper fifties to around sixty nice and warm everything tapers off this evening, then we'll see partial clearing tonight lows in the mid forty s and tomorrow, we'll be dry as we dive into the final weekend of the year breaks unexpected. But it is going to be windy and temperatures will start to tumble. Highs near fifty tomorrow morning falling to around forty degrees by sunset by Sunday. It's back to the chili side with a mix of sun and clouds, highs around forty degrees. And then once again New Year's Eve Monday, we'll see increasing clouds early with a chance for rain late in the day New Year's day books. Warm. We'll make a run for sixty s across the state."
