Coastal Flooding Issues Continue Today

Wind Advisory Coast Rain Developing Later Today

Well that  was a nice Thursday, wasn’t it. Now that its gone it is on to the next storm system and its issues. The flow has been onshore all week and that has caused coastal flooding problems due to high tides to continue to build. We have Coastal Flood Warnings and advisories that will continue through today and tonight and into Saturday. Minor to some moderate coastal flooding is likely especially along the New Jersey coast.

Today is also going to be about the increasing east and southeast wind as low pressure heads into the Central Appalachians and a sweeping front pushes northward tighten the gradient up along the coast. Wind Advisories are posted for New Jersey and Long Island coastal counties with winds forecast to gust to 40 to possibly 50 mph at times later this afternoon and tonight. The strongest winds for Southern New Jersey will be in the afternoon and evening while areas to the north the wind issues will be tonight.

Clouds are on the increase and there is an east west band of rain running well ahead of the main rain which comes later today and tonight. Low pressure is moving east and then turning northeast and north as a weather front sweeps to the coast and stalls tonight into Saturday.

The first area of rain plays through tonight and then the front stalls offshore and a second wave moves south to north along it. That will mean cloudy skies Saturday and there will be on and off showers that will vary from place to place and from time to time. Temperatures today and Saturday will be in the 50s to some lower 60s.

Rainfall amounts from tonight and Saturday will likely total between 3/4 inch and 1.5 inches with some locally higher amounts. The fact that the rain is stretched out over 24 hours is a counter to the low flash flood thresholds so other than the usual suspect spots we should be okay from this standpoint.

Finally on Sunday this system moves to our north and winds turn to the northwest. The upper trough begins to lift out. I’m thinking that we should see some slow improvement Sunday. We will leave in the chance of the odd sprinkle or shower that could scattered around inland. However we should see at least some brightening of skies as we work through the day Sunday. Highs Sunday will be mostly in the lower 60s. Monday should see sunshine return with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
