Tornado Watch Issued For Most of NJ Until 8:00PM – Including Ocean County

tornThe National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for most of New Jersey, including Monmouth and Ocean counties, that will remain in effect until 8 p.m. tonight. The weather service says we can expect to see scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and into the evening, issuing the tornado warning and cautioning some of the storms could produce small hail and gusty winds – mainly before 8:00PM.

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management is monitoring the potential for the severe weather conditions statewide. A Tornado Watch was issued at 1 p.m. today, and is in effect for all but extreme southern New Jersey from now until 8:00 p.m. tonight.   
New Jersey residents are advised to monitor weather conditions today. “Watch for deteriorating conditions, pay attention to media outlets or Internet sources for severe weather watches and warnings, and take shelter immediately when a tornado or severe thunderstorm warning is issued,” advises State Police Superintendent Colonel Rick Fuentes, Director of the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management.  
A severe thunderstorm or tornado “watch” is issued when atmospheric conditions are favorable for the formation of adverse weather conditions. A “warning” is issued when severe weather conditions are imminent. Flash flooding can happen quickly; never drive on a road with water covering it and never drive around barriers blocking a flooded road. TLS-LANT
