Heavy Rain, Gale Force Winds Headed For New Jersey

A Coastal Flood Advisory has been extended to include the entire Jersey Shore from Middlesex to Cape May counties as a storm with high winds and heavy rain continues to makes its way towards New Jersey.

The National Weather Service’s Mt. Holly office is calling for the the slow-moving storm, formed in part with remnants from former Tropical Storm Karen, to bring gale force winds out of the northeast with gusts to 45 MPH will cause 6-9 foot waves with minor to moderate beach erosion during high tide through Thursday

Some minor coastal flooding has already been reported on LBI and along the south coast but rain has yet to fall. The rain will begin overnight into Thursday morning with the heaviest amount along the shore.

Rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches are expected across the state with the heaviest amounts falling closest to the coast. Flooding will likely occur in areas of poor drainage; beach erosion is also expected.

The storm’s effects will linger through the weekend with heavy surf and rip currents. High pressure to the north will keep the storm stuck in the same place just to our south. Inland areas will have rain and less wind.
