Tornado Watch today

In the midst of the pandemic crisis, NJ is seeing a tornado watch today through many counties including Hudson.

Winds may clock in at 70 mph and the alert is out statewide.

NJ.com reports:

A tornado watch has been issued for most of New Jersey on Monday as strong storms that might drop as much as 2 inches of rain and possibly pack winds gusts of 70 mph continue to batter much of the state, the National Weather Service said.
The warning was issued for all but the five northeastern New Jersey counties - Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic and Union - that are covered by the National Weather Service’s New York office. The rest of the state’s 16 counties are under a tornado watch until 6 p.m.
