As a result, the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center has issued a hazardous weather outlook for New Jersey, Pennsylvania Delaware and portions of Maryland.

Though the rest of Wednesday afternoon and early evening hours will remain dry, clouds will build in from the west, the National Weather Service says.

It’s all because of a low pressure system that is spinning across a stalled front that is draped over areas surrounding the Pennsylvania-Maryland border.

The heaviest of rain will begin to approach South Jersey around 2 a.m., according to advance weather radar.

Brief heavy showers are possible along with isolated pockets of thunder and lightning.
