Welcome To New Jersey

Personal Note: I live in Central New Jersey. We live only about 35-40 minutes inland, so I'm sure we'll get some strong winds (we already are getting 30 mph gusts). Tonight and tomorrow should be interesting around here.

STATE COLLEGE, PA (AccuWeather.com) -- AccuWeather.com meteorologists say Hurricane Wilma and the remnants of Tropical Storm Alpha will be drawn north along the Atlantic coast. By Tuesday they will be absorbed into a large low pressure system that will develop off the Virginia Capes, forming a "super-storm" that is expected to bring wind, rain, snow and flooding to the Northeast.

There is the potential for extensive wind damage, especially in coastal areas. The wind and snow could uproot trees and snap limbs that haven't shed their leaves. That could lead to the potential for power outages if the trees strike power lines.

Update 10/25: The nor'easter and the hurricane never merged. We got wind and rain but it only lasted several hours instead of 2 days. All is fine here!
