Hoboken Flash Flood Watch!
Maybe, Maybe Not…
Currently, the Hoboken area is under a “Flash Flood Watch,” with the potential for some heavy rain which can leading localized flooding.
While the National Weather Service is predicting heavy rain amounts from 1.5 to 2.5 inches, other forecasting bureaus are only suggesting about an inch for the Mile Square.
Oddly enough, now that all the elections and appointments are over – so are the gracious offers of “Free Parking” for those that reside and park in flood-prone areas of town (such as the 4th Ward, etc.) See official forecast below – and stay dry this morning and afternoon!
Flood Watch has been in effect for over 24hrs already
FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM EST MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY EVENING…
THE FLASH FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR PORTIONS NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY INCLUDING HUDSON COUNTY.
FROM 6 AM EST MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY EVENING ONE AND ONE HALF TO TWO AND ONE HALF INCHES OF RAIN IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE TRI-STATE FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING. THE HEAVIEST RAIN IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN AFTER MIDNIGHT… AND THE HIGHEST RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE GENERALLY EXPECTED OVER THE LOWER HUDSON VALLEY AND NORTHEAST NEW JERSEY. ANY STRONGER CONVECTION EMBEDDED IN THE RAIN COULD PRODUCE LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS ANYWHERE ACROSS THE TRI-STATE.
THE PRIMARY THREAT ACROSS THE REGION IS FLASH FLOODING OF QUICK RESPONDING STREAMS AND SMALL RIVERS… AND IN URBAN AREAS.
A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION. YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS BE ISSUED.
