Calm Before The Storm
A sun-filled Tuesday is on the way as we dry out after the rain yesterday and before another round of precipitation from a nor'easter tomorrow. Clouds increase tonight and precipitation begins Wednesday right around lunchtime. Let's begin with snowfall. This will be primarily a rain event for much of South Jersey as the center of the low will pass very close to our area, bringing plenty of warm air in off the ocean. You will need to get into Western portions of South Jersey to see measurable snow and even there it will likely mix with sleet and rain for a while.
Along the coast we could see some real issues Wednesday night and Thursday. Expect wind gusts over 50 mph along with 2 or more inches of rain. That would be bad enough, but persistent onshore winds will also lead to minor tidal flooding on Wednesday and moderate tidal flooding on Thursday. Power outages with the high winds will also likely become an issue, especially closer to the coast. So enjoy the calm weather today as the weather begins to go downhill during the day tomorrow.
