Here is footage from the severe weather that moved through the Garden State on Wednesday night. This was the first instance of severe weather this season. The most notable of the effects was the vivid lightning, which not only went from cloud to cloud, but also from cloud to ground. There were two waves of storms with the first coming around sunset while the second occurred later in the evening.
Here is a brief video of what was probably winter’s last gasp here in Middlesex County, New Jersey. On the day after Palm Sunday, there was a storm that brought some wet snow in the morning. The snowfall didn’t accumulate since temperatures on the ground were too warm for the white stuff to stick. The storm system did bring fairly squally conditions to the area though.
Here is a slideshow from pictures taken of damage that still lingers along the Jersey Shore some five months after Hurricane Sandy crashed ashore in late October 2012. There are still visible scars from the storm in places such as Waterfront Park in South Amboy, and Union Beach.
Here is a slideshow from photos taken of the severe weather in Northwestern Middlesex County, New Jersey on Wednesday night.

Here is a time lapse video of weather conditions in South Plainfield on the first day of December in 2012. It was a cloudy start to the final month of the year in Northwestern Middlesex County.

Here is a short time lapse video of the sun setting over South Plainfield on November 29th. It was a relatively uneventful day weather wise as the sun was out to try and warm up what was a chilly one in Central Jersey. Took this video with my new Hero 3 camera.
Here is a slideshow from the pictures taken of the damage along the Jersey Shore at several locations from South Amboy to Sea Bright. The damage was quite extensive, especially at Sea Bright, which was just opened to the public again on Wednesday. There is a curfew in the coastal town from 5:00 PM to 7:00 AM. The beach near Waterfront Park in South Amboy is contaminated. It will be a long time before the Jersey Shore is whole again.
