Remnants of what was Hurricane Issac will impact the Jersey Shore through Wednesday, according to the State Police.

Flash flood advisories, watches and warnings have been issued all over New Jersey, according to a State Police alert. Residents may consult http://www.weather.gov/phi for more information.

A flash flood warning is in place for northeastern Ocean County, including the greater Point area, and Monmouth County, according to alerts posted by

The flash flood warning is in place until 5:30 PM, according to Burger's Facebook page, which cites the National Weather Service in Mount Holly as an information source.

Thunder could be heard in Point Boro before 1:45 and the rain had started before then.

The alert says:

"AT 130 PM EDT, NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED VERY HEAVY RAIN OVER PORTIONS OF MONMOUTH AND NORTHEASTERN OCEAN COUNTIES.

* LOCATIONS IN THE WARNING INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO ASBURY PARK, LONG BRANCH AND TOMS RIVER.

THE PRECIPITATION WAS MOVING TO THE NORTHEAST AROUND 15 MPH AND COULD PRODUCE RAINFALL TOTALS OF AN INCH OR TWO IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME. LOCALIZED RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF TWO TO THREE INCHES ARE POSSIBLE.

A FLASH FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT FLOODING IS IMMINENT OR OCCURRING.
IF YOU ARE IN THE WARNING AREA MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND IMMEDIATELY.
TURN AROUND DON`T DROWN!"

Additional information from Burger, from 2 p.m., states:

"Showers and thunderstorms throughout the day which could bring heavy rains, with the average of 5" of rainfall during the overnight.

We can expect some severe flooding, ponding water on roads and flooding in those areas prone to flooding. Some of these severe thundertorms can produce small hail and gusty winds in excess of 35 mph.

Tonight these showers and storms will continue as a front approaches and pulls the remnants of Hurricane Isaac northeastward. Heavy rains and showers will also be on tap Wednesday as those remnants slide through our area with the cold front from the northwest.

"The weather will start to clear up by late Wednesday night. The high temp today will about 78. The low tonight 68-70.

On Wednesday a high of 86. There will be clearing by Thursday and the sun will return, but we will still have a chance of thunderstorms with the instability in the air.

So, to sum it up, expect showers and T storms, some could be severe with a lot of rain today and into Wednesday. Flooding will be the biggest problem."

Also, there was 2.97 inches of rain in Point Boro from Monday night into Tuesday morning, based on Burger's weather center data, he said.

Patch will update this story as the weather picture changes. Please let us know if you see any flooding on roads or any other weather-related problems. And please feel free to load your rain and flooding photos into this story.Thank you.
