New Jersey faces thunderstorm threat

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — More thunderstorms are possible across New Jersey along with the threat of flash flooding as people clean up from the first round.

Little more than 4,000 customers in southern New Jersey are waiting to get their electricity back after a line of storms on Monday downed trees and power lines.

The National Weather Service is predicting showers and thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and evening ahead of a cold front.

Forecasters say 1 to 3 inches of rain may fall in a brief period. That could cause streams and creeks to rise quickly.

A flash flood watch is in effect for many parts of the state.
