We just got a good example of why tornado watches shouldn't be taken lightly today as the National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado did in fact develop in New Jersey yesterday.

With that being said, another huge swath of the state is again under a tornado watch this afternoon and evening.

Last night in northern Ocean County there was an awful lot of lightning, with almost wall-to-wall lightning flashing across the sky nearly nonstop in Toms River and Brick, but not much in the way of rain.

Or even thunder for that matter.

It was actually pretty strange. The lightning lit up my whole bedroom like a storm was right on top of me, but I didn't hear a single rumble of thunder the whole time. And it was practically a sustained strobe of lightning for almost 45 minutes.

WOBM meteorologist Dan Zarrow warns that we could be in for another round of wild weather as we get further into Wednesday afternoon and evening, and the National Weather Service has issued another tornado watch for the southern and western parts of New Jersey.
