Today is the day Hurricane Dorian makes its closest path to the Jersey Shore. Here's what you need to know.

We checked with our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow, and here are some important things to know about today's storm...

Timing...we will have some impacts starting around dinnertime and calming down in the overnight hours

Wind...we'll have gusts of up to 40mph along the coast and 30mph inland.

Rain...some isolated spots could see an inch of rain, but most areas will get about a quarter of an inch

Flooding...minor to localized moderate with tidal waterways running 1 to 2 feet above normal at high tide, which is between 1:00 and 2:00 pm on the oceanfront.

Rip currents... there is a high risk of rip currents and ocean waves are 6 to 9 feet.

Ways to help...so many areas have dealt with so much due to Dorian, we all want to help if we can. You can visit the American Red Cross website for more info.
