The statewide tornado watch was canceled at 4:03 p.m. today with no tornados reported in the state.

The National Weather Service canceled the tornado watch, said Meteorologist Walter Drag of the Mount Holly office.

Much of the state received just a short storm of heavy rain and wind gusts between 35 mph and 50 mph.

“We got through it pretty good,” he said.

The rain is still falling in this region and is the first precipitation to fall since Sept. 22, he said.

About a tenth of an inch of rain was reported at the Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township by 7:40 p.m., the service reported.

The area should be dry for another day or two at least but a storm may hit the region off the Atlantic Ocean later this week, Drag he said. He added the storm will also make it treacherous for boaters – especially the smaller vessels.
