Labor Day weekend washout

hobokenflood.jpgI guess this weekend seems like bust for all the beach bums with shore houses. With remnants of Ernesto headed our way, it looks like it’ll be a cold, windy soaker for a good portion.

I’d stay out of the water! Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

Oh, and I also mean the rivers of Hoboken, too. Send raging flood pictures if you get them!

WINDS WILL BEGIN TO PICK UP ACROSS OUR AREA AS
EARLY AS FRIDAY. WINDS BY FRIDAY NIGHT OR SATURDAY MAY BE GUSTING
BETWEEN 30 AND 40 MPH OVER LONG ISLAND AND NEW YORK CITY. THESE
WINDS WILL BE FROM THE EAST FRIDAY AND THEN GRADUALLY SHIFT AROUND
TO THE SOUTHEAST DURING SATURDAY. THIS ONSHORE FLOW WILL LIKELY
PILE WATER UP ALONG OUR COAST. AS SUCH…TIDAL DEPARTURES WILL
RISE AND WE MAY BE LOOKING AT SOME MINOR TO LOCALLY MODERATE
COASTAL FLOODING BEGINNING AS EARLY AS THE HIGH TIDE CYCLE FRIDAY
AFTERNOON. THE MOST LIKELY CYCLE TO EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS WILL BE
SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

IN ADDITION…SEAS WILL BUILD AND BECOME QUITE ROUGH…CONDITIONS
IDEAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS. THE ROUGH SURF
WOULD ALSO OFFER A THREAT OF SPLASH-OVERS AND BEACH EROSION…ESPECIALLY
ALONG THE SOUTH SHORE OF LONG ISLAND. WINDS ON THE OCEAN COULD REACH
WELL INTO GALE CATEGORY.

IN ADDITION…RAIN PRECEDING ERNESTO MAY EDGE INTO OUR REGION FRIDAY
NIGHT AND BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES DURING SATURDAY. IF HEAVY RAINS DO
OCCUR ACROSS THE AREA…WE WILL BE LOOKING AT SOME WIDESPREAD URBAN
AND SMALL STREAM FLOODING. FLOODING ALONG OUR LARGER RIVERS WOULD
BE A POSSIBILITY AS WELL. AS OF RIGHT NOW…IT LOOKS LIKE THE MOST
OF THE AREA WILL SEE 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL…WITH LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS.
