A strong offshore low pressure system will impact the Jersey Shore beginning tomorrow, forecasters say.
Rain will develop later this afternoon ahead of the widespread impacts — wind, tidal flooding, and heavier rain — that ramp up during the early morning hours tomorrow.
Tidal flooding is also a concern tomorrow morning due to an onshore flow. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect from 2 a.m. until 11 a.m. tomorrow.
Widespread minor tidal flooding along the ocean and back bays is expected during the morning high tide (between 4 and 5 a.m. and several hours later along back bays, with pockets of moderate tidal flooding possible from Long Beach Island to along the Raritan Bay, according to the National Weather Service.
Roads that are typically susceptible to flooding will likely experience inundation and become impassable for a time, according to the National Weather Service. Beach erosion will also occur.
