Flood Watch Coastal Flood Warning Storm Inching Northward
We are watching low pressure moving slowly northward up the East Coast and we do have some issues developing from this. A Flood Watch has been posted for much of New Jersey (except North of Route 80) and Southeastern Pennsylvania. We are also dealing with a full moon and the arrival of spring so tides are very high to begin with. Coastal Flood Warnings are up for Monmouth & Middlesex Counties of New Jersey for tides up to 2 feet above normal. Other areas are under Coastal flood advisories from Long Island to South Jersey for minor impacts from tidal flooding.
Back to the Flood Watch due to heavy rain and we will see some heavy rain coming up from the south. Look for up to 2 inches or more of rain. In fact rainfall forecast amounts have increased from NYC & Coastal New Jersey west but amounts have decreased a bit to the east. The heaviest rain will be north and west of the low track.
Regional & local radars are loading up To the South across Maryland and Virginia we have an impressive area of rain that is pushing northward with some embedded heavy rains showing up on the radar. The area is moving almost due north. Look for gradually deteriorating weather conditions today with rain lasting through this evening and then coming to an end from south to north tonight.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Once this storm system moves up into New England it will intensify into a major storm. This means get ready for the wind to crank up later Friday and Friday night. Friday we will see some breaks of sun at the start but clouds will rapidly develop. There is a strong upper air disturbance that will move through and produce some showers in the mid afternoon to early evening. Temperatures will be in the 50s and then the winds will start to howl Friday night and Saturday with sustained winds from the northwest at 20 to 35 mph with gusts into the 40s. The winds will remain strong through Saturday with some sunshine and highs in the 50s.
Sunday the winds ease, they shift to the west and temperatures will respond. We are looking at sunshine for Sunday with highs reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. We do have another weather system approaching on Monday with clouds arriving and some showers late in the day. Highs will reach the 60s before colder air comes in behind it for Tuesday. We will look at this system a bit closer later today.
