With heavy rainfall expected over the weekend, the local Upper Thames River Conservation Authority is warning of possible flooding in the local region.

The National Weather Service Flash Flood Warning for the Island of Hawai'i remains in effect.

Recent landslides and road slides include one in Beaver County on Route 68 between the Shippingport Bridge and Wolf Run Road, which was reported at 2 a.m. Monday, according to Herald.

"Small streams and creeks, low-lying and poor drainage areas, and urban areas may see flooding problems develop as soon as Monday morning." the watch said.

Falling in behind the rain is a cold front from the north which will drop temperatures and led to snow in the higher elevations Monday. That high water will also flood the North Shore walk, he added. Motorists should be prepared for torrential downpours and potential flooding as storms move through.

The weather service says the most significant rainfall is forecast over the eastern mountains.

Flash flood watches are scheduled to begin between midnight and 2 a.m. for parts of Camden, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Morris, Burlington, Somerset, Sussex, Warren, Essex, Bergen, Union and Hudson.

The rain is being blamed for a series of motor vehicle accidents around the region.
