New Jersey and the new storm
New Nor'easter Update: The storm may be setting up in a way that precipitation would fall as wet snow for a good part of the Garden state for much of the afternoon. If it will snow hard enough, then it will stick. Accumulations could reach 1 to 3 inches for much of New Jersey, mainly on grassy and non-paved surfaces, with some higher amounts possible, north and west of Mercer and Middlesex counties. New York City and Long Island can see a coating of snow as well. Rainfall amounts will therefore be reduced to around half and inch, since much of the storms' precipitation could be in the form of snow. Be alert of quickly-changing weather conditions, and use caution when driving, as winds winds will be strong, and visibilities reduced.
Storm surge and beach erosion will also have impacts for coastal New Jersey, and all waterways of NYC and Long Island.
Updates will be posted later this evening.
