Meteorologists are tracking a winter storm.
It wasn’t a white Christmas, but it may be a white day-after-Christmas. At least for a little bit. Meteorologists from the National Weather Service in Mt. Holly are tracking an east coast storm and say there will be some snow and sleet this afternoon. However, right before the evening rush hour, that precipitation is supposed to change to rain, said Mark DeLisi, meteorologist. The rain could be heavy tonight, officials said. Wind will also be a factor. Gusts could hit 31 miles per hour today but average 13 to 20 mph. Tonight, we should feel an east wind of 16 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph. After tonight, there could be up to two inches of precipitation. Tonight’s low will be in the mid- to upper-30s. Rain is likely Thursday …

The National Weather Service is advising that the volume of rain expected could flood low-lying areas and inland waterways in our area.
If an average storm typically leaves water in your basement, you might want to have some buckets ready Sunday. "All of the ingredients for heavy rain are coming together for much of the area," reads a report from the National Weather Service. In addition to high winds, the forecast calls for rainfall approaching 2 to 3.5 inches total in Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. That volume could prove to be too much for streams and small rivers, which will be on flood watch into Monday morning. Sunday also marks the 3rd annual Walk the Walk, a walk from Pompeston Park in Moorestown to Riverton Memorial park. The event, sponsored by the Pompeston Creek Watershed Association, is on rain or shine said group president Cindy Pierson. Hooded ponchos…

The Adams Street home flooded twice in the last six months.
Last month, the Rivera family got new floors, dry wall, molding and furniture. The heavy rains Cinnaminson had in April caused at least five inches of water to ruin the entire first floor of their cape style home. It ruined all the ductwork in their crawlspace and their air conditioning and heating units. Repairs were nearly $9,000, not including the money spent to stay at hotels and keep their dogs in a kennel. When Hurricane Irene was set to hit South Jersey, Barbara Rivera prepared as much as she could. She put her furniture on risers but the new floor; well she had to take her chances. A few days after Irene hit, Barbara was ripping up the hardwood bamboo slats and moving them to the front of her house as trash. “It’s a nightmare,” …
