Strong storms, some severe in nature, are possible Tuesday night, with the coastal portion of New Jersey the most likely area to be affected, the National Weather Service’s Mount Holly office said Tuesday morning.

“The primary hazard with any storms will be strong winds,” the office said in a statement.

Showers and thunderstorms are forecast to roll into the area before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning, followed by more showers between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m., and the chance of additional scattered thunderstorms after 4 a.m. The overnight low temperature will be about 60 degrees.
