Flood watch in effect for Hoboken NJ
Weather nerds have been monitoring this “Nor’Easter” that’s expected to slowly hug the east coast this week. At this time, the Hoboken area is under a “flood watch,” with rain of 2 to 3 inches expected tomorrow (potentially more). High tides tomorrow are approximately 10am and 10:30pm, but hopefully this won’t be a problem, because it’s not expected to be one of those “intense” downpour like storms, just a steady rain. But with the rain we had this past weekend, be on the lookout for possibly flooded spots in the usual areas of town Here’s the current “watch:”
