Coastal Flood Warning, Gale Warning For Coastal NJ, Storm Warning Southern NJ Coast

Coastal flooding continues tonight through Sunday with strong gales and even storm warning conditions in Southern New Jersey. Winds from the northeast at 25 to 45 knots with higher gusts for the next 2 days will create higher than normal tides and beach erosion up and down the New Jersey coast. Coastal Flood Warning is in effect through Sunday.

You don’t see STORM WARNINGS posted for the coastal waters too often but they are up and this may create confusion but this is NOT REALTED TO HURRICANE JOAQUIN!

Gale Warnings north of Atlantic City.
