Nor'easter Expected To Hit Jersey Shore On Wednesday

A potent, fast-moving nor'easter will hit the Jersey Shore Wednesday into Thursday, according to local officials and the National Weather Service.

Primary concerns with this system will be strong northeast winds, high surf, and at least minor coastal flooding on Thursday morning. Snow is also expected.

A coastal low-pressure system is predicted to lumber up the coast during the early portion of the week and intensify when it reaches the Middle Atlantic States.

However, the National Weather Service’s GFS model points the low pressure system going out to sea, keeping snow amounts low.

As a result, the Jersey Shore could receive 2-4 inches of snow because some of the precipitation could fall as rain. Areas farther inland, including the western portions of Atlantic County, could get 4-6 inches. It looks as though Cape May County residents might only get 1-2 inches of snow.

Those living along the I-95 corridor receive the grand prize for a 6- to 8-inch storm total.

Snow/ice does cause DEATHS!

Last year we got what 2 inches total..mother nature does what she wants. If our township officals were smart and did save money from last years lack of snow/ice and didn't spend it on memorial rocks..this year we be in better shape for expense to handle this weather..

DAS..you are the reason this country is failing. You and the lazy, dumb, uninformed dopes you pal around with.
DAS February 12, 2014 at 06:43 PM
Yes I am lazy, that's how I got my Masters Degree, while you are working on an 8th grade education, getting your information from FOX news you jackass. Out of the over 1700 comments you have made on the patch, not one has shown that you have one once of common sense, you are a moron.
