N.J. faces wet and windy day

    New Jersey is facing wet and windy weather conditions.

    The National Weather Service says a strong cold front could produce heavy rain and there’s a slight risk for strong thunderstorms Tuesday.

    A coastal flood advisory is in effect from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. along the Delaware River.

    Minor tidal flooding is possible if heavy rain occurs during the time of high tide. High tide takes place around 1 p.m. near the mouth of the Delaware River to around 5 p.m. near Burlington City.

    Meanwhile, a wind advisory is posted for most of the state from noon until midnight.

    Forecasters say southerly winds of 15 to 25 mph could pack gusts up to 45 mph.

    Those winds could down tree limbs and utility lines.
