Another active weather pattern returns to the New Jersey forecast for the middle of the week, as nearly the entire state will be under a threat for strong to severe thunderstorms and damaging winds throughout Wednesday night.

A hazardous weather outlook has been issued for several northern and central New Jersey counties with heavy rain expected to arrive in the late-afternoon hours as a cold front approaches from the northwest, according to the latest forecast from the National Weather Service.

Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Union counties may see a few thunderstorms that could be strong to severe around Wednesday night, along with the potential for damaging winds and large hail, forecasters said.

The storms are expected to move southeast during the evening hours by the time they arrive, giving similar threats to some central counties, including Monmouth, northern Ocean, northwestern Burlington, northern Camden and Salem counties.

“The cold front will move through the region with scattered showers and thunderstorms,” said Steven DiMartino, who runs NY NJ PA Weather. “The thunderstorms will be capable of intense downpours, frequent lightning, small hail, and wind gusts over 40 mph.”

A few isolated severe thunderstorms will be capable of driving wind gusts over 60 mph at times, according to DiMartino.

Rain is expected to slowly weaken around the mid-to-late evening hours, bringing mostly scattered showers overnight, according to the weather service.

Minor flooding is once again possible with these storms, as many areas of New Jersey continue to recover from the effects of Hurricane Ida. The best chance for any severe thunderstorms will come north and along the I-78 corridor, forecasters said.

The threat for tornadoes is also possible with these storms.

Clear and sunny skies will be in the forecast for most of Wednesday, but scattered cloud cover will approach by the afternoon hours with temperatures in the mid-to-high 80s, according to DiMartino.

On Thursday, the cold front will stall over the region with scattered to broken cloud cover and a few scattered showers throughout the day. Some areas may see more scattered showers that may be capable of heavy downpours around Thursday night.
