Damaging winds, spotty roadway flooding and yes, even a small possibility with a tornado, will be present.
Damaging wind gusts will be the main threat to watch out for. Wind speeds just 2 to 5 thousand feet above the surface will be 70 to 90 mph. This shows a maximum potential for wind gusts. More than likely, it'll be lower. However, even still, winds 50-70 mph will be enough to create power outages and down large branches or small trees. Bring any loose objects inside on Sunday night.
As with any thunderstorm, there will be areas of roadway flooding, as rainfall rates over 1 inch per hour will be present. Take it slow for the Monday morning commute, especially along the coast, where storms will exit last.
In terms of a tornado, a small potential does exist. New Jersey only averages two tornadoes a year, so more than likely, the region will be fine. However, do pay close attention to our coverage at The Press or other trusted outlets early in the morning.
Hail will not be an issue. Storms will move from southwest to northeast.
