Despite Saturday’s rainfall and melting snow, flooding is unlikely in North Jersey over the next couple of weeks, climate experts say. But that does not mean that the threat can be written off entirely this season… Most parts of Bergen and Passaic counties collected about a half-inch to an inch of rain in 15 hours Saturday and the area’s rivers were keeping well within their banks… The potential for flooding down the road depends primarily on how fast residual snow pack melts, which in turn depends on how quickly temperatures rise, said Dave Robinson, state climatologist at Rutgers University… The melt so far this March has been "well-behaved," Robinson said. Temperatures have climbed into the mid-40s and even 50s during the day but remained below freezing at night. Rivers that have been swollen for parts of the day have had time to recover.
