[ARCHIVED] Coastal Storm to Affect the Region through Wednesday

• A coastal storm will bring multiple impacts to the region starting this evening continuing into mid week.

• Heavy rain, with rain amounts of 1 to 4 inches, is likely over much of the region. The highest amounts are expected over New Jersey, which has the highest risk for flash flooding. 

• Severe thunderstorms (primary hazard of damaging winds) are possible tonight.

• Minor coastal flooding is possible with the evening high tides Tuesday and Wednesday.

• Hazardous conditions expected on the waters with building seas and near gale force winds.

• Uncertainty remains high with this system as small shifts in the track could lead to significant differences in the impacts for our region. A shift closer to the coast could mean even higher rain amounts, more significant flash flooding, and stronger winds further inland, while a shift further off the coast could mean more limited impacts.
