SOMERVILLE, NJ – The National Weather Service has issued three different weather advisories for Somerset County over the next 24-48 hours.

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 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday.

The timing of the storm is reminiscent of last year’s blizzard which dumped approximately 2 feet of snow across Somerset County Jan. 23rd–24th. This year, however, temperatures and the storm track have meteorologists predicting a high wind and rain event.

The winds are expected to cause significant power outages due to downed tree limbs and power-lines.
