Several location in western New Jersey including Stewartsville heard the thunder and saw the lightning late this morning. That was unexpected so early in the day! This is an indication how much potential energy is in the atmosphere today!

The Storm Prediction Center agrees and has issues a Tornado Watch just to our south.

This is in effect until 11 pm tonight. I would not be surprised if this was extended a little further north but we’ll see. If not I expect a severe thunderstorm watch further north.

What this means is there is strong potential for heavy rain, strong gusty winds, lightning from late this afternoon until around midnight or so. The best chances for severe weather for western New Jersey appears to be from 5 pm – 9 pm.

I will post more information as it becomes available.
