Hudson County and the surround -- Are you ready for Tropical Storm Alberto set to hit here Wednesday?

Yeah, that caught you off guard perhaps. Yes it would seem the Atlantic Ocean is kicking up her heels a touch early this year and an early season tropical storm, Alberto VO5 is skipping up the east coast from South Carolina where it formed (and where you amy send any repair bills) and should be off of the Jersey shore Wednesday into Thursday. An early tracker from Wunderground:

Wednesday
Overcast with a chance of a thunderstorm and rain. High of 73F. Winds from the NE at 5 to 10 mph shifting to the SSE in the afternoon. Chance of rain 60% with rainfall amounts near 0.3 in. possible. Tropical Storm Alberto: Estimated distance to storm center 322 mi. Max sustained winds 39 mph with stronger gusts possible.

Wednesday Night
Overcast. Fog overnight. Low of 57F. Winds from the SE at 5 to 10 mph shifting to the ENE after midnight. Tropical Storm Alberto: Estimated distance to storm center 322 mi. Max sustained winds 39 mph with stronger gusts possible.

Thursday
Overcast with a chance of a thunderstorm and rain in the afternoon. Fog early. High of 72F. Winds from the ESE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20%. Tropical Storm Alberto: Estimated distance to storm center 317 mi. Max sustained winds 39 mph with stronger gusts possible.

You might want to tie down what needs to be tied down in the back yard now like small grills, lawn chairs, kids toys, grandparents, and other items that could get caught in a breeze and wind up two yards away.
