Get set for the strongest storm since the "Bomb Cyclone" from early January as the area could see Nor'easter-type conditions on Friday.

While this storm will fall short of the Bomb Cyclone's intensity and will not be as cold, it will still pack a wallop, according to AccuWeather.com.

Wind gusts of 50 miles per hour or more are possible along the coast Friday night with beach erosion and coastal flooding possible.

Light rain will arrive late in the afternoon Thursday and continue overnight into Friday as all rain in northeast New Jersey, the lower Hudson Valley and coastal Fairfield County with wind gusts between 25 and 30 mph overnight.

Rain will mix with some snow farther north and become all rain after 9 a.m. Friday with the day's high temperature reaching the low 40s. High near 40.

There is still much uncertainty as to precipitation amounts and types, the National Weather Service said in a Hazardous Weather Statement issued on Tuesday.

Areas north of I-84 will see a mix of rain and snow with all snow possible at times with accumulation of between a quarter and half of an inch possible.

Possible impacts could be scattered power outages from a combination of wind and precipitation, and/or urban and small stream flooding from runoff from heavy rain.
