A Very Windy Monday, Slippery Conditions as Rain Gives Way to Gusts

Rain will move out but wind will remain.

After a soaking Sunday, expect a blustery start to the week.

Heavy rain continued to fall through the overnight hours as the storm system moves through. The rain then gave way to strong winds that could make trees left vulnerable by saturated soil a fall danger. Snapping branches could take down power lines as well.

Winds may hit peak gusts of 35 mph — especially at the Jersey Shore — and temperatures won't climb out of the 50s, so be prepared to bundle up.

Here’s how conditions are forecast to be through Monday:

Give yourself some extra time as slippery conditions should be expected. SEPTA warned Regional Rail riders to expect possible delays due to slippery rails.

Near daybreak, the rain started to taper off west to east and break up. Winds will continue as the storm moves out. Gusts up to 43 mph already hit some South Jersey neighborhoods Monday morning.

Howling winds will take hold with gusts across the region and higher gusts along the Jersey Shore. Tree limbs and wires could come crashing down, so take care as you walk, bike and drive. Also, it's a good idea to tie down those Halloween decorations and trash cans.

By midday there were more than 4,000 PECO outages and other scattered outages around the region.

You’ll definitely need the jacket as well. High temperatures will only get to the mid-50s.
