TRENTON — Forecasters say there's a chance for showers or thunderstorms as New Jersey tries to dry out from more heavy rain that's causing flooding in parts of the state.

Scattered showers are expected in the southern New Jersey area but total rainfall should not exceed one inch, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Lee Robertson.

A flood warning for small streams remains in effect until 12:30 p.m. Tuesday in northern Ocean County. The Toms River in Toms River remains above flood stage and is expected to continue to slowly rise through the morning.

There's minor flooding in Eastampton along the north branch of Rancocas Creek in Pemberton in Burlington County. The river is expected to rise slightly above flood stage.

The flood warning has been cancelled for small streams in Monmouth County, where the threat of widespread flooding has diminished.

Monday's rain followed a soaking from remnants of Tropical Storm Andrea on Friday.
