Isaac remnants a threat to Hoboken

Post-tropical Isaac might drench Hoboken, NJ area

There is potential for flooding over the next couple days in our area, due to the remnants of Hurricane Isaac finally making it to the northeast.

The National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook through Wednesday night of this week. “PERIODS OF HEAVY SHOWERS AND EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS ARE LIKELY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT AS A SLOW MOVING FRONTAL SYSTEM AFFECTS THE REGION. URBAN AND POOR DRAINAGE FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE DURING THIS TIME, WITH A LOCALIZED FLASH FLOOD THREAT…”

As always – it depends where you are. Some folks will get lucky, others may get pummeled. Let’s just hope Hoboken dodges the bullet!

One year since Hurricane Irene – Hoboken could do without Isaac

8/21/2012:

Remember Hurricane Irene last year? Great drama, but some bad flooding and property damage here in Hoboken.

Weather forecasters are now tracking a tropical system (Isaac), which has some potential to affect the United States, and in particular the east coast. Now, through the end of the Hurricane season is when things typically heat up.

I personally hope this fizzles out (or at the very least avoids our area) – so we don’t have to deal with any annoying weather issues, but it’s always prudent to periodically check in on the situation just in case.

    On the plus side, I have noticed that a lot of people still have the tape on their windows from the last storm.

    Models are showing this hitting the Dominican and Cuba.

    FYI – some computer models are suggesting that stormy remnants of this tropical system may be close to our area by next Thursday – possibly affecting Labor Day weekend… of course these are just rough models, and may very well come nowhere near here – but take for what it’s worth:

    We’re lucky Isaac won’t be mucking up Labor Day plans around here – but take a look at the incredible predicted rainfall map (through Sept. 2nd). That’ll help the Mississippi river levels, that’s for sure.
