The good news is that it’s not cold enough for snow. In the meantime, we will have to battle the strong, gusty winds and rain.

Wind advisories are in place for our coastal communities and places like Atlantic City and Wildwood could see gusts to 50mph.

Monmouth and Ocean Counties are until a High Wind Warning where gusts to 60mph are possible through the morning. The rain will begin to taper off late morning and early afternoon.

Most areas will pick up anywhere from 1-2 inches of rain with locally higher amounts, especially for our shore points.

A Coastal Flood Warning is also in place for our shore communities. High tide on the oceanfront will occur between 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and with the constant onshore flow, minor to moderate coastal flooding will be possible during this time.

While mother nature hammered the coastline with heavy rains and strong winds reporter Kimberly Davis braved the conditions.

“Definitely don’t come out here,” Davis said as high winds picked up around her. “This is expected for much of the morning into the day.”

Atlantic City Electric said that 500 customers were without power as a result of the rough storm.
