    Lingering floods continue to pose problems for people in Passaic County.

    Northern New Jersey may soon be dealing with more flooding.

    The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch for 11 counties in the region, citing a slow-moving storm system that should reach the Garden State by early Monday.

    Forecasters say a steady rain should develop by Monday afternoon and continue through Tuesday morning, with 1 to 1.5 inches of rain possible. And there could be higher amounts in some spots.

    The heaviest rains are expected late Monday afternoon and Monday night, which could lead to flooding at small creeks, rivers and areas with poor drainage.

    Some northern areas are still dealing with flooding spurred by a massive nor'easter that hit the area from March 12-14.
