Coastal Flood Advisory New Jersey Long Island
We have a Coastal Flood Advisory up for New Jersey today as well as for Western Long Island. Low pressure to the south and a strong high to the north are creating a tight pressure gradient here. The result is a rather strong northeast wind with a long ocean fetch. Combine that with the second new moon of the month of September and you have conditions for minor coastal flooding up and down the New Jersey Shore as well as the western shores of Long Island back to New York Harbor. Only minor coastal flooding is expected a high tide.
...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 11 PM EDT THIS EVENING... * LOCATION...COASTAL NEW JERSEY AND DELAWARE AND THE LOWER DELAWARE BAY. * COASTAL FLOODING...MINOR COASTAL FLOODING IS POSSIBLE WITH BOTH THE HIGH TIDE THIS MORNING AND THE HIGH TIDE THIS EVENING.

HOWEVER...HEAVY RAIN AT THE TIME OF HIGH TIDES COULD EXACERBATE COASTAL FLOODING...LEADING TO TOTAL WATER LEVELS EVEN HIGHER. * WAVES...ON THE DELAWARE BAY...WAVES UP TO 5 FEET WILL BE POSSIBLE. * IMPACTS...ROADWAY FLOODING IS EXPECTED NEAR BOTH HIGH TIDES.

As far as rain is concerned there has been a fair amount of rain over the western half of New Jersey overnight with just some spotty light rain or drizzle elsewhere. More waves of rain are coming up from the south but they are moving northward and seem to be arcing north northwestward so western areas of New Jersey will continue to see rain which much less in the east.
A second wave of rain will arrive on Friday and this will encompass all areas from New Jersey to Southern New England including the coast. Another surge of rain is likely over the weekend. No genuine weather improvement is likely until late Sunday or possibly not until Monday.
