Coastal Flooding Storm Surge New Jersey Long Island

Coastal Flooding Storm Surge New Jersey Long Island

This coastal storm is coming at the worst time as it coincides with the full moon which is Saturday. This of course the worst time to have a noreaster with the full moon making tides higher than normal to begin with. Add a noreaster that could produce storm force winds of 50 knots or more and you have the ingredients for serious coastal flooding and beach erosion. The biggest risks appear to be for parts of the New Jersey shore and the western areas of Long Island Sound for both the Long Island and the Westchester  & Connecticut side.

The graphic  above is the storm surge forecast from the Ocean Prediction Center. This model predicts storm surge and it is forecasting a storm surge of 4 to 5 feet along the New Jersey shore and a storm surge of 4 to 5 feet over western portions of Long Island Sound. This could cause some serious tidal flooding at the times of high tide. Coastal flooding is likely. For the south shore of Long Island the surge is shown to be less but still significant to cause coastal flooding especially in those areas that already get routine flooding during a full moon cycle.

With winds forecast of over 50 knots and ocean seas building to 10 feet or more, this will add to the tidal flooding issues.
