ATLANTIC OCEAN - SEPTEMBER 30: In this NOAA handout image taken by the GOES satellite at 13:26 UTC, Hurricane Ian approaches the Atlantic coast of northern Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas on September 30, 2022 in the Atlantic Ocean. After crossing the state of Florida bringing devastating floods and damage, Ian is expected to bring more hurricane-force winds as it travels north along the coast.

Hurricane Ian is currently traveling up the east coast, as you know if you’ve been following the news. New Jersey is not predicted to have weather conditions mirroring Florida or the Carolinas, but remnants of the re-formed Hurricane Ian will lead to a “prolonged period of unsettled weather” in New Jersey this weekend.

Per NJ Advance Media, Hurricane Ian “could drop as much as 4 inches of rain along the Jersey Shore and generate strong gusty winds at times,” forecasters say.

“Ian remains a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph, but its forward speed has increased slightly to 14 mph. Landfall is expected early this afternoon between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina,” per CNN.

The last time New Jersey experienced a hurricane was back in 2020. During Hurricane Isaias, more than 300,000 New Jersey residents lost power. The National Weather Service had confirmed that two tornadoes touched down in Cape May County and in Ship Bottom on Long Beach Island in Ocean County, per ABC7.
