TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Forecasters say several inches of rain could fall across New Jersey over the next few days.

Periods of moderate to heavy rain are expected to start Tuesday night and continue through Wednesday morning. That could cause localized flooding in poor drainage areas in New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.

More rain is expected on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and wind speeds are expected to intensify during that time frame. But how much rain the region gets - and whether flooding will be a concern - will likely depend on the track that Tropical Storm Joaquin takes.

The expected precipitation should help ease drought fears in parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, which have seen little rain in recent weeks.
