Here is weather footage of conditions along South Amboy’s Waterfront Park beach as the skies began to clear after a nor’easter finally moved out earlier in the day. Conditions were still blustery and brisk as a result of the tight pressure gradient between the high pressure from Canada moving in, and low pressure from Hurricane Joaquin as it moved toward Bermuda, and made its closest approach to New Jersey and the Mid-Atlantic coast.

Here is storm footage taken on day two of the October Nor’easter of 2015 from South Amboy’s Waterfront Park in Middlesex County, New Jersey. Although this area was off Raritan Bay, and somewhat shielded by Staten Island, it still took a good beating from this storm that also fed off the tight pressure gradient between strong high pressure trying to move in from Canada, and the low pressure centered in Hurricane Joaquin, which was starting to move away from the Bahamas at this point.

Here is car cam footage of my drive through South Plainfield and into North Edison en route to Bishop Ahr during the nor’easter that developed in the latter part of the week. The storm lasted for the better part of three days as it worked in tandem with strong high pressure coming out of Canada, and significantly low pressure from Hurricane Joaquin to the south (931 millibars). The difference in pressure created a tight pressure gradient that produced strong winds along the coast and inland. The storm ended up bringing almost an inch of rain to GWC in South Plainfield.
