Meteorologists are keeping an eye on newly formed Tropical Storm Joaquin, which could have an impact on the Jersey Shore's weather this weekend.

Meteorologist Dan Zarrow has been monitoring the storm carefully and here's what he's thinking so far...

"Tropical Storm Joaquin is currently 900 miles south-southeast of New Jersey, just northeast of the Bahamas.  The current forecast track turns Joaquin sharply to the north and right toward the Jersey Shore.  The potential is certainly there for some very heavy rain, wind gusts over 40 mph, and pounding surf this weekend.  There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the exact track and timing of Joaquin, but there is a likelihood that New Jersey will see at least some weather and/or surf issues.  It will be extremely important for all New Jerseyans to keep an eye and ear on the forecast as it continues to evolves over the next day or two".

We will, of course, continue to monitor the storm. Stay up to date with Dan's latest forecast anytime.
