Hurricane season officially begin six days ago and already, New Jersey is bracing for some rough weather.

Tropical Storm Andrea is expected to shoot up the mid-Atlantic coast over the next day or so, sweeping past New Jersey tomorrow.

How Bad Will Andrea Be in NJ?

“The storm heading our way could produce some heavy rains with squally winds, and in localized thunderstorms you might even have stronger winds, but it’s nothing along the lines of what we saw with Sandy last year, or even for that matter with Irene the year before,” says State Climatologist at Rutgers Dave Robinson.

He points out no significant flooding or wind damage is anticipated – unless something radically unusual happens in the next 24 hours.  “And that’s not likely to be the case,” he says.

Robinson adds over the past month or so, New Jersey has had average rainfall, so the ground is not saturated, which is also good news.
