NJ coast . A Coastal Flood Advisory is now in effect.

and most of NJ. A Wind Advisory may be needed.
The first snow storm of the New Year brought 1-3 inches in New Castle County. That snow storm which hit the first state on January 4, 2022, dumped 6-8 inches in Kent and Sussex County. Along with it came the high winds in some parts of the state, limited visibility and nasty road conditions.
The second storm struck not less than four days later and dumped 3-5 inches on January 7, 2022. The storm was primarily snow, except for portions of Sussex County, (portions of the county closer to the coast), where a wintry mix and even periods of rain occurred. Eastern and southern Sussex County saw amounts between a trace to 3 inches.
