well, anywhere within the red box here you need to be get to go your safe spot immediately, to the lowest level of our home, if you have a payments, down to the basement area, if not you want to put as many walls inbetween yourself and the outside as you possibly can. still picture, we zoom in little closer. >> see turnersville new jersey, pine hill, west berli berlin, glenn oaks, this area having the potential for maybe radar indicated tornado, at this point, because that's why we do have tornado warning going again until 7:00 this morning. within more tike, the village every glenn oaks, buckingham village. so route 47, route 42, this morning, you don't want to be traveling in that area. there is us30, around the lindenwood area, pine hill
6:42 am
area, all spots you need to be again moving to your safe space immediately, as soon as this was issued, just about i would say 15 or so minutes ago, at this point, you needed to be immediately moving to the safe, safe spot. so zoom out could be wider range picture every just how big this warning is, it extends all the way from the wofford area, medford lakes, you're just on the northeastern edge of our polly gone. so again that's where you're going to be need to go take some shelter at this point, again, lowest level of your area, walt, that's what you need to do, keep yourself safe when we have these kind of situations, right now, they're saying this is moving at about 45 miles an hour, so we can put a storm track on this, and we can kind of time out where we think it might be, just in the next hopefully maybe 20
6:43 am
minute or so. even less than that since our tornado warning does go until 7:00. so for another 18 minute we will be looking for this tornado warning to continue. here is our storm track, we kind of zoom out to the east. see the pine hill area right around 644, berlin, new jersey, 6:48. the lowden area around 6:52. so again, pine hill, 6:44, well, it is 64:00 it, so basically on top of you at this point specially moving at 45 miles an hour, extremely fast moving and dangerous situation now developing in south-central new jersey, one more time back to the velocity, try to give you an idea once again where that maybe upper level rotation is at the national weather service was indicating could potentially have the potential to maybe form a tornado. so again, right around gloucester, just now past gloucester, south of us30, circumstance tell for you, casino every right in here, is
6:44 am
where we are looking for that rotation. the reason we're looking there is when you have a green and red next to each other on this velocity image, what we are looking at is he winds upper level, moving away from the radar site, of course fort dix is our radar site. right now seeing green and red touching together she we could be upper leveled some rotation potentially there. that's why this tornado warning still in effect for another 16 minutes, until 7:00, this morning. but the good news for some of us is hopefully see this cancel little bit from west to east as this system fast, very quickly tracks, to the east, now, getting report, though, this coming in just around 6:39, the national weather service in mt. holly saying that tornado warning for mercer county and monmouth
6:45 am
county, also, in new jersey, has been issued as well. >> this one will be going until 7:15 go up, just past the trenton area, again, meshes err county is part of our viewing area, talking about tornado warning until 7:15, and middlesex, kind of central new jersey, as well, we will go back to just our regular run of the mill radar, you can see, not just lot of heavy rainfall, thunder and lightning, associated, all radar indicated. no reports of any tornados that are on the ground. this is all just radar indicate nothing report of anything that is on the ground, but dreary low hanging clouds it, makes it very difficult to see anything, whether it is a funnel,
6:46 am
whether it is actually tornado, and system and situation where we're taking little extra precaution, by looking at the radar. >> have these situations, so we'll just one more time. >> we get the information on it, as well, precipitation rate very high in that area, too, but with a we are looking for here is tornado warning, mercer, including the city of hamilton, marlboro, middletow middletown. >> radar indication cents there is potential for some rotation there had a issued a tornado warning. >> there is no risk of severe weather, no marginal slight risk for today.
6:47 am
>> we were looking for potential of stronger thunderstorms, through the morning hours. good news, looks like later this afternoon, that we are going to clear things out. jan, i'm going to kind of sends it back over to you at the desk just real quick. >> i want to ask you quick question, i want to stay with this, matt. you say tornado warning. explain to the folks at home exactly what that means? it doesn't mean tornado has actually touched down, right, just means the conditions are ripe for a tornado? >> that's correct. >> when the tornado warning circumstance use it, usually means either there are -- there is rotation on the radar or could be tornado on the ground. this particular tornado warning that we actually both of these, the national weather service saying they're radar indicated so again what that means is that they looked at the information on the radar rain, velocity, and then they determine that there was the potential therefore a tornado
6:48 am
to form. while it doesn't mean there is one on the ground these do have potential to form a tornado. >> highest risk, tornado warning. >> cannot go higher than tornado warning, so it means this situation is ongoing. and, again, like i said, the rain, out there, too, really kind of obscuring things, so if there is even a rotating funnel clouds, if there is something out, there the rain can really make it tough. >> we saw the traffic cameras out there, short time ago. could you really, the visibility, was incredibly low. you could see it was raining, coming down hard. want to go over exactly again, matt, counties we are talking about for the tornado warning and the times and what people should do right now. >> start with the first one issued, tornado warning for burlington, camden, gloucester county this one going for just about another 12 minutes for depford, gloucester, voorhees
6:49 am
and washington >> that's where we are potentially seeing the rotation, you see, berlin, in there, the waterford area, gibbsboro as well, new jersey, 73, and us30, if you're around either of those areas, here this morning, you need to be get to go your safe space watch we talk about safe space, always the lowest level of your home. if you have a basement, go there. if you have to stay on the first floor of your house, as many walls inbetween the outside and yourself. you want to be away from windows, and the reason we tell people as many walls inbetween outside, just extra protection. one more thing, jan, i like to bring up, if you can, if you have children, even yourself, put your bike helmets on. maybe take a pillow with you, if you're somewhere, where either potential for things to fall down.
6:50 am
if you do have strong gusty winds >> do we know how fashion this storm is moving? and how much rain is coming down, do we have any of that information or is that still developing? >> so it is moving right now, actually just about to put another storm track on this, for everyone specially in central new jersey 45 miles per hour, moving to the east at this point, so these are time stomachs manies. the west axle area, 6:52. just about two minutes, but with something that's moving this fast, if you're in west atco, 6:50, 6:52, union should be in your safe place already, basically almost on top of you.
6:51 am
waterford, the same thing, 6:53. 6:50 right now. do still have couple every minutes to get to your safe place, just outside of our tornado warning, the flya area is. then you see the shamong area around 7:00. just by the time this tornado warning getting ready to expire it, should be moving into that shamong area. much calmer, what we're concerned with, is this, eastern, edge, of this line of thunderstorm activity, again, moving at 45 miles an hour, at this point, lowden, right almost on top of you, i did just want to go back one more time. >> really is our best pool that we have, with our radar, because again, it gives you the idea of where the potential rotation is, and again, always concerned with. when we talk about radar
6:52 am
indicated, this is most likely what the national weather service was looking at. >> that's winds going toward and away from the radar. >> oh,. >> and when you have them next to each other, usually can mean that there is the potential for some spin, in the atmosphere, so of course, of course, we would look for something like a tornado to spin counter clockwise, so in the area right around berlin, there is a little bit of green and red together. also, just down to the south, north of andrews, we're also getting, again, that green and red coming together, so that's where we could potentially be seeing that upper level rotation at the national weather service concerned about. >> what we are looking at, is that real time? >> real time. >> this last scan, scans come in every two minute i believe.
6:53 am
>> most severe conditions, berlin, watt r forwards? >> anything within our tornado warning pollygone, again, see blerb lynn, andrews, water forwards forward, we can try to zoom in little bit more anywhere along route 30, anywhere around the tansborough area, lowden, up toward jackson road, hopewell road, raymond avenue, anywhere in that area, that is our main area of concern. >> but it moving so fast 45 miles per hour we're concerned about the berlin area right now, tans borough, lowden, in the next couple every minute, we will be already talking about areas out maybe toward the dullos area, shamong area, medford lakes, because this is, again, such a fast moving storm. so you need to be taking shelter right now, even if you're outside of our tornado warning pollygone, med for lakes, tabernacle, shamong,
6:54 am
along 206. now need to be concerned, you need to be taking your precautions already, even though, we don't have that tornado warning in effect currently, still going to continue to monitor this for another seven minute, this does go until 7:00. this morning. >> we always talk about timing, too, matt, with storms, you know, i guess we're semi fortunate. it is a weekends. >> this isn't rush hour we're talking about. but on the same, in the same vein, people might still be asleep since it is the weekends. >> another thing we do get concerned with, when we have these kind of early morning systems, again, especially on a weaken. >> we're in a area weather radio, noah weather radio great tool for severe weather. un fortunately since we are not in an area that is necessarily prone to severe weather all the time, a lot of folks do not have them a lot
6:55 am
of cell phones will go off if your cell phone signal hits a tower within or near so many miles of a tornado warning or severe thunderstorm warning, your phone will go off. so even if you don't have necessarily all of this severe weather tool hopefully your cell phone will protect you, hopefully woke some people up that were in gloucester township out near glenn gloucester, water forwards areas, woken up by their cell phone, maybe just woke inch up by the thunder and lightning, turn it on, realize i need to get to my safe place. >> so we have about five minutes left matt until this expires? >> just about five more minutes, that is correct. >> just in, the tornado warning is set to expire at 7:00. tornado warning in gloucester as well as burlington counties, this, and camden county as well, set to expire at 7:00 watch that means is the national weather service
6:56 am
has assessed the situation. they believe that the threat has diminished enough that they're not going to cancel the warning early, still another four minutes, but they believe that the threat has diminish enough that at 7:00 we are not going to re-issue another tornado warning at this time. it wouldn't surprise me with the line of thunderstorms and the fact we did have this tornado warning that that did add severe thunderstorm warning on the back side of this. >> just as precaution? >> and it would be for strong winds, most likely what we would see. usually when we have these kind of line segment, they zoom our radar out, we can get a look what's going on, i put it in motion for us, as well. it really, right now, has kind of given thus line segment. and when that happens, we usually ends up with very strong gusty winds. which sometimes can do just as much damage, as a tornado, they can gust 60, 70, or more miles an hour, at times. >> yes, a lot of people when we see damage afterward, think
6:57 am
maybe it was a tornado but it is straight line winds that can cause as much damage sometimes? >> that's correct. and, again, we will have our tornado warning for just about another three minute or so. what i want to do as we get toward the ends of our tornado warning here, i want to put another storm track on there is because again, this whole line of thunderstorms, is very, very potent. it is very strong. obviously, if it spawned a tornado warning, again, moving about 45 miles an hour, so it is now through the philadelphia area, and the folks in central and south jersey, now going to be kind of in the cross hairs for this for the next hour or so. so here is a storm track for the next couple of hours, for the rest of new jersey, for eastern new jersey, from the inland, pinelands, pinelands areas all the way to the coastline. you can see winslow, looking at the shower, thunderstorm activity right over top of you right now, but just past 7:00 right around 7:15, the crest wood village area,
6:58 am
you're going to start see the strong line every thunderstorms move on in, manchester, 7:17. then toward the coastline, towards toms river, just around 7:30, jan. so still going to be monitoring this, even though tornado warning is going to expire here, in just another two minutes, still going to be having to monitor this line, as it moves across central new jersey towards the coastline. because again still looking at very potent line of thunderstorms. >> you mentioned toms river, and central new jersey. right on the outskirts of our coverage area there, there is another weather alert in central and north jersey, correct, that expires, i believe you said, 7:15? >> that's correct. we do have another tornado warning for this one, for mercer county, and then, also, for north -- mercer, middle, and monmouth counties until 7:15, still continuing to monitor the northern edge of this strong line of thunderstorm activity, again, hamilton, marlboro area, middletown, all incorporated within that tornado warning,
6:59 am
we will kind of just take one, another look, at this. tuesday our same stools, and see where the national weather service maybe is looking at this line, or this cell, where the potential strongest areas are for some of that rotation, and right around the manalapan area, the national weather service will continue to monitor this situation. that actually gives us a little bit after better, call it, radar signature, than we had central jersey and burlington and -- burlington county, camden county, as well. so again, this is just on kinds of the northern edge of our viewing area. but if you do know anyone that is near the freehold area, near monroe, near east windsor, up into, you know, just around mercer county into the north central part of new jersey, if they're not up. if you do know them, give them
7:00 am
call real quick. let them know what's going on, see if they're okay. >> this corks again, potentially be dangerous situation, as well. >> matt, i'm wondering; this is the same system that came up with cindy, or is this something totally different? >> so this is actually this is the renmant of what was tropical storm cindy. it came up through the gulf of mexico, as we all know, flooding along the gulf coast. unfortunately, one fatality, small boy, ended up having his life taken unfortunately with this, and then as the low continued to track inland it, weakens, but this is the renmant of what was tropical storm cindy. so, again, that's why we have so much moisture with this, usually we get a line of thunderstorms, that fire up along the cold front. they come in, wham, bamm, we've been so hot, so humid, our atmosphere was ripe for the potential for some
