New Jersey got some good news this evening at the expense of its southern neighbors. The National Hurricane Center pushed the projected track of Hurricane Joaquin farther west Wednesday afternoon, as models trended toward a landfall in the Chesapeake Bay area throughout the course of the day… "There’s no question this run is better for us," said David Robinson, the state climatologist at Rutgers University. "But we’ve got some stuff to worry about before then."… A high wind watch and a coastal flood watch were posted for the entire New Jersey coastline from Friday to Saturday, as storm front retrogrades back across the Garden State… After the weekend, things become somewhat murky again. "While there has been a clear shift in forecast models toward the south and west regarding Hurricane Joaquin’s path, the National Hurricane Center cautioned that confidence in the forecast remains low."
