Toms River could feel the effects of harsh weather before Tropical Storm Arthur gets here - if it gets here.
While a heat advisory has been issued for New Jersey, thunderstorms may produce strong winds Wednesday afternoon. Heavy rain with localized flash-flooding could follow, according to the National Weather Service.
Flash-flooding will be a threat Thursday into Friday as a cold front slowly moves through the region and potentially interacts with "tropical moisture" from Arthur, according to the NWS.
We'll have more information as it becomes available.
