Wind and rain expected to ease in NJ

Weather conditions are expected to improve after a rough early-morning commute across New Jersey.

Sheets of wind-whipped rain are blowing across the Garden State Friday. Motorists are often facing debris on the roads.

But the bands of rain, which are dumping as much as an inch an hour, are moving offshore.

Forecasters say wind advisories will end as the wind shifts to the northwest. The shift will also reduce waves that have been pounding the shore.

Flood warnings are in effect for parts of Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, Union, Camden, Mercer, Monmouth, Middlesex, Atlantic, Burlington, Cape May and Ocean counties.

More than 34,000 homes and businesses are without electricity in New Jersey.

NJ Transit River Line service is temporarily suspended between the WRTC and Entertainment Center stations due to flooding in Camden.
