    Rain is in the forecast for five of the next seven days in the tri-state.

    Showers are expected in the area Tuesday afternoon, and again on Wednesday. We get a break Thursday and Friday but the rain is likely to return on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

    That's not good news to residents in sections of northern New Jersey, where some streets remain closed in flood-prone areas after a two-day storm soaked the area with more than 4 inches of rain.      

    Forecasters say minor to moderate flooding will continue along the Passaic River at Pine Brook and Little Falls and the Rockaway River at Boonton.

    Firefighters used boats or trucks to evacuate some residents in Wayne, Pompton Lakes, New Milford and Lincoln Park on Sunday.    

    Forecasters say the threat for minor tidal flooding along the Delaware River has passed in Salem, Gloucester, Camden and northwest Burlington counties.     

    The weekend flooding came nearly a month after melting snow and rain caused millions of dollars in damage in northern New Jersey.
