Tuesday Update – Jose’s Affect On The Jersey Shore
Today is going to be a nasty weather day at the Jersey Shore as Jose travels approximately 250 miles southeast of the New Jersey coast.
As of this morning, Jose is a category 1 hurricane with winds of 70 mph. And even though the storm is far off the coast, there will be real affects on our forecast and the waters of the Jersey Shore.
Here's the info you need for today. There a High Surf Advisory and a Coastal Flood Warning in effect for the entire Jersey Shore today. A two-foot storm surge could cause minor to moderate flooding during times of high tide.
Wave heights at the beaches could be anywhere from 8 to 15 feet today, and wind gusts are expected to reach 45 mph along the coast and 35 mph inland. The majority of the impact we will experience will be during the daytime hours today (Tuesday).
It's pretty amazing that there are these types of impacts from a storm whose center is so far off our coast, but it seems to be just another chapter in this ridiculous hurricane season.
Our meteorologist Dan Zarrow is tracking the storm and monitoring it for any changes. You can stay up to date on all New Jersey weather by checking Dan's weather blog anytime.
