A post-Christmas storm has brought high winds and snow to New Jersey.

Last night’s wind and rain storm has caused a number of problems along the Jersey shore, especially in areas hard-hit by Superstorm Sandy.

Mary Goepfert, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management says “the northern part of the state seemed to fare pretty well, but we do have some issues with some road closures due to flooding in Atlantic County and Ocean County and some parts of Monmouth, particularly around Routes 35 and 9, and in Mantoloking there were some dunes breached there- the water has since receded – there’s some moderate back-bay flooding… and Brick Township has closed its portion of the barrier island today due to flooding and high winds.”

She says local communities are working with the state Department of Transportation to shore up the dunes, because “we are looking to the weekend – there is supposed to be a storm coming in on Saturday , with possibly a little snow.”

Meanwhile the National Weather Service has extended a flood warning through this evening for Monmouth and Ocean County coastal areas, after some streams and rivers went above flood stage late this morning.

Up in north Jersey, the storm dumped half a foot of snow on parts of Sussex County.
