The latest National Weather Service’s briefing on the nor’easter is calling for 3 inches rain from the storm which would begin falling on Tuesday night and continue all day Wednesday with heavier rain falling closer to the coast that could flood roads in poor drainage areas.

There is also an increased threat of freezing rain and some snow that could coat roads in north Jersey and the Poconos.

There is also less of a threat of coastal flooding from the Nor’easter.

Meanwhile, New Jersey got a preview of winter with temperatures  in the low 20s around the state on Sunday morning according to the NJ Weather and Climate Network at Rutgers after a cold front passed through on Saturday night with some scattered snow showers, Temperatures didn’t get past the lower 30s on Sunday with a wind chill in the single digits and teens.

The normal high for this time of year is around 50 degrees in New Jersey.

10,000 customers were without power in Ocean County Sunday morning mostly in Lacey and Berkeley Townships according to the JCP+L outage map although most power was restored by late morning. A spokesperson for JCP&L told Townsquare Media a trip at a sub-station in Lacey is to blame.

The continuing dry weather and the winds prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Red Flag Warning from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. today as outdoor fires have the potential to spread rapidly. A serious brush fire burned in Old Bridge most of the day near Cheesequake State Park that has been contained.

Temperatures will moderate into the 40s on Tuesday when the effects of the nor’easter will begin to be felt here as travel begins for Thanksgiving.


The storm will affect those traveling away from New Jersey. The rain starts on Wednesday in eastern New England as well with possible snow in the interior areas. Snow could also fall in western Maryland.
