The flood watch for parts of North Jersey has expired, with only a slight chance of rain through late Monday possible, according to the National Weather Service.
Forecasters had warned of potential flooding in urban areas or those with poor drainage. Heavy rains soaked the area overnight Monday, but no major weather-related incidents were reported.
Public Service Electric and Gas said about 300 customers were without power across its service area. There were no reported outages in Teaneck early Monday.
The utility asked residents not to touch downed wires and report outages to 1-800-436-PSEG.
The state’s Office of Emergency Management was monitoring storm conditions Sunday, the agency said in a news release over the weekend.

We remind drivers not to drive through ponded or standing water.”
The weekend rain storm was the first significant rain the area has seen in months.
