Nor’easter Takes A Wintry Turn

Coastal residents thought they got some good news Tuesday about the upcoming Nor’easter but now the storm has taken a wintry turn.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory starting Wednesday morning at 6AM for New Jersey’s western counties including Hunterdon, Sussex, Mercer, Camden and Camden counties for 1-2 inches of accumulation mostly to the north & west of Philadealphia.

Light rain should become heavier as the day goes on and mix with snow, likely becoming all snow overnight before ending in the morning.
Forecasters on Tuesday morning thought the storm would be weaker than expected. But the latest National Weather Service briefing says the storm is likely to still bring wind gusts of 55-65MPH  to the coast, moderate coastal flooding and heavy rain for all areas.

The nor’easter will likely start as rain with 1-2 inches before mix with or change to snow over much of the region leaving 1-4 inches.

A Coastal Flood Watch and High Wind Watch are still in effect for Wednesday and Thursday.

Many coastal towns damaged by Sandy are evacuating low lying areas in anticipation of flooding. Dunes and boardwalks that usually protect the shoreline have been destroyed or not yet replaced.
