The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Burlington and Camden Counties, where small creeks and streams were rising because of rain and melting snow.
The Cooper River in Haddonfield and the south branch of the Rancocas Creek in Vincetown were both swollen, said meteorologist Joe Miketta. While the downfall tapered off by mid-morning, the combination of rain and warm temperatures melted last week's snowfall leading to flooding.
"It's pretty when it falls, but you've got to clean it up and wait for it to melt and when it melts it causes problems," Miketta said.
There was also minor tidal flooding on the Delaware River but the water level was expected to go back down when the tide moved out, he said.
