NORTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The National Weather Service has issued three different weather advisories for North Plainfield and Somerset County. The advisories are for a winter storm that is barreling up the east coast with damaging winds and torrential rains.

Somerset County is under a storm warning, high wind warning and fog warning. The high wind warning has been issued because the upcoming nor’easter is expected to have sustained winds of 30-40 miles per hour with wind gusts of up to 60 miles per hour. The strongest winds are expected to be during the day on Monday. The high wind warning is from 3:00am Monday until 9:00pm Monday evening.

The timing of the storm is eerily reminiscent of last year’s blizzard which dumped approximately 24 inches of snow in North Plainfield on January 23rd – January 24th. This year, however, temperatures and the storm track have meteorologist predicting a high wind rain event.

The winds are expected to cause significant power outages due to downed tree limbs and power-lines. TAPinto North Plainfield will continue to monitor the storm and provide updates when they are made available.
