Nor’Easter Will Impact Our Area With Wind, Flooding and Snow

Another nasty day as a powerful Nor'easter takes shape off the coast. High winds, coastal flooding and heavy wet snow will be the main impacts of the storm for our area. Any rain/mix will change over to all snow in the afternoon and is expected to come down heavy at times. Despite being late March, the snow will be coming down heavy enough to accumulate and temperatures will remain in the mid 30s. The heaviest accumulating snow will occur through much of interior Southern NJ where up to a foot of snow is possible in some locations. Along the coast, we will see at least a few sloppy inches to as much as 6" if we receive a burst of a heavy snow band and thundersnow...

Another Nor’easter To Impact Us

Oh great...not again! The fourth Nor'easter this month is set to strike our area. Get ready for more rain, snow, high winds and flooding for Tuesday and Wednesday. This storm is basically coming in two waves. The first wave will be mainly in the form of rain with some mixing possible...

Another Nor’easter Soaks The Coast

Our 2nd Nor'easter in less than a week will make for a miserable Wednesday. However, this one is moving faster and will be much weaker than the last one. Tidal flooding is not expected to be a concern as we are now coming off astronomical high tides and will only affect Wednesday morning's high tide. As a result, only spotty minor flooding is expected...

Effects of Massive Nor’Easter Lingers Into Weekend

Now that the strong gusty winds, rain and even wet snow are gone, we still have to deal with coastal flooding. Strong northerly winds will keep tides from reaching major flooding status. But high astronomical high tides due to the full moon and a slow moving Nor'easter will keep the threat of minor to moderate flooding for both high tides on Saturday and possible Sunday...

Nasty Nor’easter Set To Bring Strong Winds and Flooding

March will be coming in like a lion as a large coastal storm will develop offshore creating the potential for major coastal flooding. Although rain is not expected to be heavy, strong winds and tidal flooding will be the main concern with this storm as it rapidly develops and then stalls offshore. Rain will begin during the day on Thursday...

Dangerous Cold To Continue Into The Weekend

Now that the massive winter storm has exited the region dumping around a foot of snow with drifts of 2 to 3 feet, we face another brutal element...the frigid air behind the storm. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect until Saturday as strong northwest winds will continue to howl keeping wind chill values below zero. If you are going out remember to bundle up. Exposed skin in these conditions will cause frostbite in less then 30 minutes! (continued...)

Blizzard Warning Issued As Storm Heads For Ocean City

A rapidly developing East Coast storm will wreak havoc from Northern Florida through New England Wednesday and Thursday. A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Ocean City for heavy accumulating snow followed by strong gusty northwest winds that will cause blowing and drifting snow on Thursday. Most storms result in more snow accumulations towards Philadelphia and points N&W. However, the current track of this storm is far enough offshore that the heaviest snow will occur over our area. There will be a sharp cutoff of snow accumulations on the western side of the storm, so any slight shift in the track could result in increased snow amounts or lesser amounts than forecast...

Major East Coast Storm Theatens The NJ Coast

The threat of significant snow has now emerged for Wednesday Night and Thursday for the NJ coast. A low pressure system over the Bahamas will move up the coast and rapidly develop into a monster coastal storm. Over the past few days, forecasts have been mainly offshore keeping us from any significant effects of the storm. However, each new computer run has inched closer to the coast which has the potential to give us accumulating snow and possible near white out conditions as the storm deepens and strong gusty winds howl from the northwesterly direction...

Frigid Blast Continues With A Little Snow Too

A reinforcing shot of bitter cold air will come in time for the new year and we are looking at a little snow to coat the ground as well. High temperatures have been in the 20s most of this week with wind chills in the single digits. Now another, even colder, shot of air will be arriving on New Years Eve. A cold front will be moving through on Saturday which will bring a shot of some light snow. With ground temperatures below freezing, any snow will easily stick to the ground...

A Series Of Storms Expected For The Holidays

Christmas is almost here and even though we aren't expecting a white Christmas, a fairly stormy pattern is setting up coupled with very cold air that will be locked into our area Christmas week. This could spell a threat of some wintry weather before the year is out. First, a storm system will be moving in for the first half of the weekend. Temperatures will be flirting near 60 on Saturday, so occasional rain is expected to damper any last minute shoppers. The best chance of getting wet could be in the morning and again in the late afternoon and evening hours...
