first_img× JERSEY CITY – The Hudson County Office of Emergency Management, quoting the National Weather Service, warns that a “prolonged period” of wet weather could last through Saturday and drop up to 2 inches of rain over North Jersey and as much as 3 inches over South Jersey. It could also cause a flash flood — so be careful not to stand near water or let your children near streams and other areas that could fill up.The totals depend on the location and speed of a coastal storm that is expected to develop near New Jersey, the National Weather Service says. Thunderstorms could push totals even higher in some areas.The storm could have some characteristics of a nor’easter, with heavy downpours and gusty winds, but it likely won’t have the intense northeasterly winds that are usually associated with nor’easters that form during winter months, the report said.last_img read more
