The heavy winds and showers have already started in some parts of our area but Cinnaminson can expect much nastier weather later this afternoon.
According to a meteorologist with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Mount Holly, Cinnaminson and the entire state are under a tornado watch. Showers will turn to thunderstorms and potentially damaging winds are on the forecast.
“I don’t know if it can get any worse,” said Anthony Gigi, meteorologist. “It’s not going to snow.”
Showers and thunderstorms are expected to start after 3 p.m. and could produce gusty winds and heavy rain. The high temperature will be near 80.
Winds could hit 20 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph. Precipitation could be up to a half inch.
A wind advisory remains in effect until midnight. According to officials with the NWS, strong winds may bring down tree limbs and utility lines.

According to Gigi, the worst of the storm should be finished this evening.
