Nothing good happens between the hours of 11PM and 3AM – this is going to be case in point with this storm. This is when all hell can break loose with this storm.

Well it’s here and has been cranking from about Newark all the way down the coast to Cape May today. This will last through mid am Tuesday morning about 7-8AM and the shore has to brace for 2 more high tides. The storm actually slowed up which is allowing it strengthen and wrap some more cold air into its backside as it starts to move NE.

Not as much up here in NNJ but rain and some wind.

Overnight is trending colder will trend much windier as the storm moves up the coast to about Atlantic City and then starts to move NE from there.


This is a dynamic storm that has a moisture fetch from the Caribbean – Bahama Momma to be exact.



Power outages are still going to be widespread.

Peeps – this is a serious storm and one not to take lightly by any means.

This storm has taken 19 lives in the S/SE so far – god bless their souls and hopefully it will take no more!


School – 50/50 closing/delayed opening – all depends on power issues and if we get the sleet that the HRRR model is showing there will be delayed and closing all over NNJ, LHV and NW NJ!!

LR – winter comes back and it looks like a vengeance for February. Be patient peeps and we can see some white gold as soon as this weekend – hopefully Sunday into Monday!!

I hope for the best for all my fellow weenies tonight. Over and out peeps. For tonight unless sumting wong changes!
