Prepare for the Potential of a Nor’easter Coming Our Way
Remember what happened last year around this time ….. that brutal storm that left a great deal of South Jersey without power …… could history repeat itself?
Reports are coming in from the National Weather Service that Hurricane Sandy, which is currently hitting Jamaica, is currently on line to cause potential damage in the form of a Nor’easter for South Jersey as early as Sunday.
This storm, which is expected to be at Tropical Storm force when it comes around the area, is expected to play a crucial role in the potential development of problems for our area. The Star Ledger has reported that the chances of this happening to N.J. has increased considerably in the last 24 hours.
If this storm comes close to The Garden State, reports are it could pummel us for a couple of days.
Now as quickly as the track has changed in the last 24 hours, we could see some more shifts of this storm over the next 48 hours or so. SoJO 104.9 meteorologist Alan Kasper will be monitoring this storm and will have updates frequently throughout the next few days.
Right now one computer model is showing from the National Weather Service that this storm could be worse than last year’s Halloween scare – there is the potential of coastal flooding, drenching rainfall, high winds, downed trees, power outages, and even snow.
SoJO1049.com will continue to monitor the development of this potential dangerous storm.
