Forecasters are calling for several days of wet and windy weather as two storms bear down on New Jersey. The state’s higher elevations might even see some snow. The National Weather Service said onshore winds will increase throughout the day today, posing a risk to tree limbs and power lines.A high wind warning is in effect from Ocean County south. Forecasters said northeast winds of 25 to 35 mph could gust to nearly 60 mph. Wind gusts to 50 mph are possible elsewhere in the state.
Forecasters said the wind and rain will allow tides to rise through Friday. Widespread minor tidal flooding is possible this evening and moderate tidal flooding is possible Friday.
Forecasters are concerned the storm, coupled with another over the weekend, will prevent the tide from draining until early Monday. AP
