TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A nor’easter that dumped up to three inches of rain over parts of southern New Jersey likely is only the beginning of weather woes for the state.

The National Weather Service is calling for a mix of rain and snow on Wednesday, with many areas seeing snow showers into Wednesday night and even Thursday morning.

Northwestern New Jersey could also see freezing rain and some ice accumulation.

Heavy rains Tuesday caused moderate flooding in some New Jersey shore areas, and the storm caused scattered power outages.

Moderate flooding was reported during Tuesday morning’s high tide along the Raritan Bay shore in Monmouth County, as well as in Ocean City, Stone Harbor, Avalon, West Wildwood and on Long Beach Island. In chronically flooded Sea Bright, a narrow peninsula between the ocean and the Shrewsbury River, police advised residents to move vehicles to higher ground after the morning high tide as side streets were beginning to flood.

And Route 30 through Absecon, leading to and from the Atlantic City casinos, was flooded but still passable as of mid-morning.

Police in Harvey Cedars on Long Beach island said the rough surf was causing erosion to its beaches.

Some inland communities including Vineland and Atlantic County’s Hamilton Township experienced flooding as well.

Freezing rain around Interstate 287 and northwest New Jersey gave way to rain as temperatures rose. More than two dozen schools in the northwest part of the state delayed opening.
