N.J. weather: Hurricane Ian could push some rain, winds as far north as N.J., forecasters say
Hurricane Ian is a storm that is heading towards the western coast of Florida. It has strong winds of 120 mph and is expected to affect parts of Georgia and other southeastern states in the US. The hurricane will continue to head north during the weekend.
While Ian is likely to dump a lot of rain on Florida, some forecasts say that it will be as much as 10 to 20 inches. Heavy rain is also expected in Georgia and the Carolinas, but it is not sure how much moisture will go as far north as New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
As of right now, it looks like there is a good chance that Hurricane Ian's remnants will cause some heavy rain and strong winds in parts of New Jersey this weekend and next week. However, exactly how bad the impacts will be depends on the storm's path and how it interacts with other weather systems in the Northeast
The storm Ian is going to cause lots of problems in the Northeast next weekend. ”There will be a lot of dry air in the region before Ian arrives. This could reduce the amount of rain the area receives, or even steer the rain west toward the Appalachians and Ohio Valley. A storm is coming our way and we will know more about it once it passes Florida and goes up the southeastern part of the US.
A quiet Saturday in New Jersey with mostly clear skies and temperatures near normal for the first weekend of October is what the weather service is expecting in Mount Holly.
The weather this weekend and next week will be very different depending on where Hurricane Ian goes. The remnant low of Ian lifts towards the Mid-Atlantic after high-pressure retreats to the north. There is the potential for redevelopment offshore, which would result in rain and gusty winds by Monday. Some people think that computer models are good for predicting the weather, but other people think that they are not very accurate.
The weather service's New York regional office said that a strong high pressure system might stay over the region this weekend, which could prevent Hurricane Ian from moving much further north from the Southeast towards the Northeast.
The National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington office said that it is unclear how much of Ian's tropical moisture will make it into the area this weekend.

UK weather warning: Atlantic storm to batter Brits with rain and 50mph winds
The remains of a storm from the north are set to hit later this week, bringing with it miserable wind and rain. A storm is coming and it will be wet.
A lot of the bad weather we've been having lately is because of low pressure from tropical storms over the Atlantic. The deputy chief meteorologist at the Met Office told The Sun on Friday that a deeper area of low pressure would move into the northwest of the UK.
The met office has issued a yellow-rainfall warning for tomorrow."This means that it will rain a lot tomorrow and it will be windy. The met office has issued a yellow-rainfall warning, which means that people should be careful. However, this is nothing unusual for the time of year.
“At this time of year, the effects of the Atlantic tropical cyclone season can make it difficult to forecast rainfall and wind strengths more than a few days in advance. As a result, the exact timings and strengths may vary throughout the week.” The rest of the week is not going to be good either.
Today, cold, heavy showers are expected. Cold northerly winds are expected to bring low night-time temperatures in the UK from Tuesday. More exposed areas of North Wales and the West Midlands will see windy conditions as the rain falls. Conditions will also be wet in the afternoon in the far South-West.
Rain from last night's storm will clear out of the far southwest today, but showers will continue elsewhere, especially in eastern and western coastal areas and northern Scotland. The weather on Wednesday is expected to be sunny with some showers in coastal areas.

Do I need to bring my own mask or other requirements to the public shelters?
If you are going to be in a public shelter, it is important to be prepared to wear a mask. You should pack enough masks for everyone in your house.
The Centers for Disease Control suggests this because it is less likely that you would need medical assistance if you were in a shelter.
Can I bring my pets with me to the shelters?
You should be aware that not all public shelters accept pets. When a shelter allows pets, you may have to register the animal in advance for that specific shelter. Also, a pet shelter might separate the animals from their families, so be aware of that.
Officials say that pets should have a disaster supply kit that includes, for example, food and water, medications, and plastic bags to hold waste.
