Hurricane Track Shifts East

NOAA Sept 4

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for the Jersey Shore today. The storm track has shifted east, but flooding is still expected along the coast. The threat of flooding is worse in the southern part of the state.

Moderate flooding is expected along the coast with tonight’s high
tide, and moderate to major flooding is likely with the Monday morning high tide, according to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly.

Coastal flooding may continue into Tuesday. Water in the back bays will have a hard time draining between tidal cycles, which should lead to prolonged and significant flooding in these locations, according to the National Weather Service. There could still be tidal flooding into the upper portions of Delaware Bay and the tidal Delaware River, including Philadelphia. The combination of higher than normal tides and heavy rain will cause flooding of streets and low lying places in the coastal areas today and Monday.

Heavy rain is now expected to remain well off the coast closer to the center of the storm, and estimates of the heaviest rainfall have been reduced. The Princeton area is expected to receive between .01 an .1 inches of rain between tonight and Wednesday.

Tropical storm force winds of 39 miles per hour or greater are possible along the coast, with lesser winds expected further inland.
