This storm will produce a period of heavy rain across the region with one to two inches of rain expected Sunday into Sunday night.

The heaviest rain is expected to fall during the afternoon and early evening hours. Minor urban and poor drainage flooding is possible due to the heavy rain.

Should a widespread rainfall in excess of two inches occur, flooding can be expected on the Ramapo river.
