Tropical Storm Andrea – Oh boy

How much will Tropical Storm Andrea affect Hoboken?

Another Hoboken Weather Watch for you. Tropical Storm Andrea is churning in the Gulf of Mexico at the moment, and is expected to cruise up the coast and potentially affect the entire eastern seaboard to some extent or another. No hurricane craziness, but the possibility of a “deluxe” extended thunderstorm with whipping winds and the threat of flooding rains.

Some weather forecasting models are suggesting that this area might get 3-4″ of rain in a relatively short amount of time. While fully subject to change, it’s wise to be aware of what is being discussed in the scientific community – especially if it has the potential to affect your life or property.

That’s it! Enjoy the rest of your day.

About Hoboken Weather Watch

Hoboken411 from time to time publishes public service announcements to “interrupt” regular programming – especially when it comes to Hoboken weather alerts.

Although most individuals are in tune with the potential for severe weather, we sometimes like reminding area residents to at least have it in the back of their head. Using our “weather expertise” and long-time residency, we try our best to weed out the less likely possibilities to avoid unnecessary alarm.

Because in Hoboken – even spring showers can lead to destructive flooding.

Does anyone know what the rainfall total was for Andrea in the area? I heard it was about 5″ but I was curious if that was right?

Is there somewhere online to look how much rain we’ve had in the past week, month, year?

It seems to rain 50% of the time around here and in large quantities… I’m going to start walking my dog with a life preserver if this keeps up 😉

This will fizzle out and be nothing to worry about. More hype than harm.

Although I do know where my raft is at all times. 🙄
