Moderate coastal flooding is expected again at the New Jersey shore from the next winter storm due to impact the northeast later tomorrow into Saturday. The National Weather Service is urging people at the coast to be prepared for this threat; their Mount Holly, New Jersey local forecast office said, “Now is a good time to prepare your property for tidal inundation, especially if you live in a flood-prone area.”
The coastal flooding threat is one of many impacts expected in the Garden State from this next storm. Wintry precipitation in the northern part of the state, heavy rain elsewhere, and very windy conditions are expected from late Friday evening into early Saturday morning.
The worst of the coastal flooding is expected to happen around the time of the early Saturday morning high tide, with the worst conditions forecast for Middlesex, Monmouth, and Ocean Counties. This includes the coastal communities of Perth Amboy, Sandy Hook, Long Branch, Manasquan, Seaside Heights, Barnegat Light, and Beach Haven.
Minor coastal flooding is also expected along the New Jersey coast of the Delaware Bay, and southeast New Jersey from Cape May to just north of Atlantic City.
Spotty or minor coastal flooding is possible in Delaware and portions of northeastern Maryland.
