Friday flooding possible in Hoboken
Forecasters Seem to think we have almost IMMINENT FLOODING in store for tomorrow!
I’ll be “away from the office,” on my way to the Van Halen concert, so charge your camera batteries tonight, and send any flood photos to Hoboken411@gmail.com (along with any wacky observations you might have.) I’ll post them when I hit a Wi-Fi spot or whatever.
For new residents in Hoboken, check out a good example of what happens during a hearty rain storm in town: http://hoboken411.com/archives/6534
Note: We may get a bit lucky, as high tide is a bit past noon tomorrow, with a higher tide a bit past midnight. That’s about all the encouraging news I could find.
Flood Watch (as of 6pm Thursday)
HEAVY RAIN ON FRIDAY WILL LIKELY CAUSE FLOODING…
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM MOVING EAST FROM THE OHIO VALLEY WILL PASS JUST TO THE SOUTH OF THE REGION. RAIN WILL OVERSPREAD THE REGION FORM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST AHEAD OF THE SYSTEM AROUND SUNRISE. THE RAIN WILL BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES BY MID MORNING AND CONTINUE INTO THE AFTERNOON. 2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL ARE EXPECTED (WITH LOCALIZED HIGHER AMOUNTS) BY THE TIME THE RAIN ENDS FRIDAY EVENING.
SIGNIFICANT URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING IS POSSIBLE IN THE WATCH AREA BASED ON CURRENT FORECASTS.
YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.
RESIDENTS WITH BASEMENTS THAT ARE PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD TAKE ACTION AT THIS TIME TO PROTECT PROPERTY.
