Russ Zimmer Asbury Park Press Published 9:28 AM EDT Mar 22, 2019 Sunday is expected to be calm, sunny and mild, but we have to endure a little more breezy, grey and cool beforehand. Rain will linger through the day as a nor'easter passes off the coast of New Jersey. Potentially damaging winds are expected to arrive here later today, according to a new forecast from the National Weather Service. As unpleasant as it is outside, this coastal storm is manifesting in a much more dangerous way in New England. Inches of snow, a glaze of ice and flooding rains are all in the cards for our neighbors to the northeast today. Here, the worst of the rain has already passed. Most areas picked up between 1 to 1½ inches of rain during the past 24 hours, according to data from the New Jersey Weather & Climate Network. Tidal flooding fears failed to materialize overnight, but a coastal flood advisory remains in effect for Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex counties through this morning's … [Read more...] about NJ weather: Nor’easter whips up wind in New Jersey on its way to whack New England

U.S. A cross country winter storm is expected to drop several inches of snow on the northeastern United States, along with heavy rain and severe thunderstorms in the southern portion of the country before record-setting cold rolls in for the early part of the week. Winter Storm Scott began its trek across the country on Friday, dumping 13 inches of snow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California and prompting the closure of a portion of Interstate 70 in Colorado. Kansas Department of Transportation and the Missouri Highway Patrol both warned motorists on Saturday that most of the roads in their respective states were covered in snow, The Weather Channel reported. Drivers were urged to wait until later in the day to travel. On Sunday, Interstate 44 and Interstate 255 near Saint Louis were both closed for several hours after wrecks.

With all of the reports of drowning and rescues along the Atlantic Coastline, beach-goers might be questioning whether it's safe to swim. If you're planning a trip this weekend to any of the shore points, take caution - lifeguards Thursday report moderately rough surf and changing conditions due to storms off the East Coast. "Quite frankly, it is always a fluid situation because conditions change day-by-day, hour-by-hour," said Erich Wolf, lieutenant with the Avalon Beach Patrol. Over the past week several hundred rescues have occurred along the East Coast, from North Carolina to Massachusetts, as tropical storm Chris skirted the coast. Last week, five people died in New Jersey after being pulled from the water at Surf City, Normandy Beach and Island Beach State Park, according to NJ.com. On Monday a Pittsburgh man died after being rescued from the surf in Ocean Grove while on the same day Atlantic City Police and National Guard searched for a missing swimmer at Showboat … [Read more...] about Is it safe to swim at popular beaches in New Jersey, Maryland?
Russ Zimmer @RussZimmer Published 7:06 p.m. UTC May 24, 2018 Taken together, the four snowy coastal storms that ripped past New Jersey during consecutive weeks in March caused more beach erosion than all but four storms since 1980, according to an expert from Stevens Institute of Technology. The "four'easter," as it was coined, was a run of extreme weather (three nor'easters and one coastal storm, technically) that culminated in a foot of snow across much of the state on March 21.

Hurricane season begins June 1. "We had those four storms in quick succession and the beaches didn't have time … [Read more...] about Hurricane season: Are New Jersey beaches ready?
close Video Massive pollen storm caught on camera in New Jersey Massive pollen storm caught on camera in Millville, New Jersey. So how bad is the pollen this season across the Northeast? A New Jersey resident decided to find out Monday, reaching a conclusion that may cause some to grab a box of tissues. Jennifer Henderson, of Millville, N.J. posted a video to Facebook showing her husband tapping a tree while driving a backhoe loader. Shortly after tapping the tree, a massive cloud of pollen ebing held by the tree is slowly released and descends as the backhoe quickly reverses away. "When my husband said the pollen’s bad, I probably should’ve taken his word for it," she wrote. "Crazy!" Julia Lowe Ehrhardt, program coordinator at the Tyler Arboretum in Philadelphia, told FOX29 that blooming maple, birch, and oak trees are the main culprits. A cool April has led to many late-blooming plants, according to Ehrhardt. "It was like three seasons in one week.
