Morning Update – Snow Totals Will Vary And Coastal Flooding A Concern
Our March Nor'easter has arrived and the impact will be widespread and varying throughout Monmouth & Ocean Counties.
A Blizzard Warning remains in effect for Monmouth County until this evening and a Winter Storm Warning is up for Ocean County. There are also High Wind Warnings and Coastal Flood Warnings in effect for the Jersey Shore.
As far as the accumulations are concerned, they vary widely and it all depends on where you are. Meteorologist Dan Zarrow says that I-195 will be the line that separates all snow from a mix of precipitation.
If you are south of I-195 your totals will be much lower, but areas north of it could see a foot or more before the precipitation tapers off during the afternoon.
There is also the problem of the winds associated with this powerful storm. Gusts of up to 60mph certainly have the potential to cause scattered power outages throughout Monmouth & Ocean Counties.
And then there's the potential for coastal flooding. The high tide along the oceanfront is between 9:00am and 10:00am and the there is a risk for moderate coastal flooding.
