Finally! Nasty weather moving out of NJ

Relief is finally on the way for weather-weary New Jerseyans. Back-to-back nor'easters have soaked the Garden State since Thursday, dropping heavy rains in most areas and even a few inches of snow in northwestern areas. The two systems also spurred unseasonably cold temperatures for several days.

But forecasters said the second storm was moving out of the region early Sunday afternoon, and temperatures were expected to slowly move back toward normal as the sun returned on Monday. However, the National Weather Service did issue freeze warnings and frost advisories for late Sunday night into Monday morning.

The nor'easters spurred minor-to-moderate flooding across the state and caused moderate beach erosion in several shore communities. Meanwhile, strong gusty winds associated with both systems knocked down numerous trees and caused other damage.
