One South Jersey town took a clean sweep at the medal podium Saturday as numerous thunderstorms and heavy showers sat in in the region.

The storms closed down Route 30 in Absecon, near Route 9. Further up Route 9, road closures were had on the highway in Barnegat. Traffic was slowed to a crawl along the Garden State Parkway in Ocean County for part of the afternoon, as a heavy thunderstorm stayed nearly stationary.

It is here, in Ocean County, where the first, second and third place finished for the most rainfall fell. Here are the top ten highest amounts. 

Rainfall amounts were taken from the National Weather Service in Mount Holly. Special thanks to the NWS for organizing the data. 


This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I'm forecasting South Jersey for you.
