    There's nothing worse than trying to dodge and weave through the rain drops on a rainy day in New York City. But a new umbrella sharing pilot may make getting stuck in the rain a little easier. Who really wants to lug an umbrella around all day? So here's a solution: umbrella sharing.

    A lunar eclipse known as a red moon or "blood moon" was visible in the Tristate area on Tuesday.  It started early in the morning and was the first of four such lunar eclipses over the next year and a half. The moon turns red during this type of eclipse because the sunlight is refracted, similar to the way it is bent during a sunset.

    A forecast for the 2014 hurricane season predicts much-less than normal tropical activity this year but stronger storms forming closer to the United States.  “The very warm water off of the Eastern Seaboard is a huge problem," chief forecaster Joe Bastardi said.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Weather-weary New Jerseyans are bracing for another round of winter weather.

Forecasters say the storm should hit sometime Thursday and could drop several inches across the state before it exits early Friday.

The precipitation is initially expected to be light, but will likely intensify by early Thursday evening. And temperatures should drop into the low single digits by Friday night, with subzero wind chills likely in most areas.

Winter storm warnings were issued for northern Jersey, where 6 to 12 inches of snow is expected, while winter storm watches were issues for central and southern areas, which could get 3 to 7 inches. Those advisories will be in effect Thursday afternoon to Friday morning.

Strong, gusty winds are expected with the storm, meaning travel could be treacherous.

New Jersey Transit has announced that it will cross-honor all tickets on Thursday.

  • Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Friday, April 18 2014 4:11 PM EDT2014-04-18 20:11:50 GMT
    Basil plants grow on a New Jersey farm, but the facility could be turned into a five-acre medical marijuana greenhouse with only 48 hours' notice. The hoses from the state-of-the-art Dutch hydroponic system are watering flowers now, but with a few minor adjustments could just as easily grow marijuana plants for medicinal cannabis. The only reason it's not happening now is because the company is publicly traded and subject to federal law.
