Tropical Storm to Impact NJ: Alan’s Weather Blog
High temperatures yesterday reached the 70s, as high as 78 in parts of Burlington County, and 75 in Atlantic City.
We have a tropical storm to be concerned about. Andrea, the first storm of the hurricane season formed yesterday, and has strengthened a bit. The highest winds of 60mph now as it’s south and west of the Florida panhandle.
It will be moving northeastward up along, and just inland of the East Coast in the next day or so. It will probably be just southeast of Atlantic City, just after midnight Friday. For us it’s going to mean some heavy rain at times beginning later tonight and especially Friday. It will also be windy but we should be able to handle that without a problem. It will range from 20 to 35 mph with gusts over 40 mph, especially along the beach and boardwalk.
Highs today will be in the low 70s, cooler near the ocean. Lows tonight 57 to 61. Low 70s again Friday, but cooler along the beach. The storm will be long gone by Saturday, with leftover clouds and some sun. We could see a shower or two. Highs in the 70s.
Partly sunny Sunday with temps high in the 70s.
