The National Weather Service Forecasters are placing parts of NJ at an enhanced risk of severe weather Monday afternoon. 

Officials in cities around NJ urged residents on Sunday to use much of  Monday morning to cut down hanging tree branches and secure loose objects in preparation for the storm expected to reach the Bergen, Essex, Passaic and Morris county areas around 3 p.m. 

 According to the National Weather Service, one or two lines of thunderstorms will pass during the afternoon with severe weather possible. 

The potential for severe weather will be between 3 and 7 p.m. Monday across the area.

Forecasters said there might be a shower or storm before that near the Garden State Parkway corridor, where a cooling sea breeze will set up. 

The storm would only be overhead for 60 to 90 minutes.
