Gusty winds along with moderate to major coastal flooding could impact the New Jersey coast around midweek when a powerful low pressure system forms off the coast, according to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Prediction Center.
Moderate flooding is also possible along the Delaware Bay, the Weather Service said during a 5 p.m. storm update on Sunday, March 3.
The period to watch is the time of high tide on Wednesday afternoon and again on Thursday morning.
Also, the New Jersey coast could be battered on Wednesday with peak wind gusts exceeding 60 mph. Gusts ranging from 40-45 mph could reach as far inland as eastern Pennsylvania, the Weather Service said.
The highest precipitation totals will remain south of New Jersey, the Weather Service said. However, a slight northerly movement from the storm could easily increase rain or snow totals here.
Currently, temperatures are forecast to be too warm for the storm to deliver much of a snow threat, according to the National Weather Service, AccuWeather and the Weather Channel.
Rain will begin falling late Tuesday evening and could turn to snow during the cooler hours of early Wednesday morning. Then the snow should change back to rain, the Weather Service said.
Less than a half an inch of snow is expected, however.
