April Nor'easter Dumps Heavy Rain On Toms River

Hazardous weather outlook lifted for Monday morning

A spring nor'easter packing soaking rain has dumped almost an inch of rain on Toms River, with reports of compromised power lines in the Bay Shore section of town Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued a coastal flood warning for the area on Sunday but predicted the storm calming to a drizzle this evening.

This morning's forecast calls for areas of drizzle before 10 a.m., then isolated showers between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., then scattered sprinkles after 2 p.m. Cloudy, with a high near 55. Breezy, with a west wind between 14 and 23 mph.

For the evening, scattered sprinkles before 8 p.m., said the National Weather Service. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 39. Breezy, with a west wind between 13 and 20 mph.

"Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on small creeks and streams, and ponding of water in urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well as other poor drainage areas and low lying spots," warned the National Weather Service, which still has hazardous weather outlooks in place for Burlington and Middlesex counties and elsewhere. For Toms River, a frost advistory is predicted Tuesday night.

We needed that rain, badly. We need a day or two of rain like that every week for the next month to catch up. Would be real nice if it didn't happen (on) every weekend though... I sympathize with the working people!
