Minor coastal flooding is possible Tuesday afternoon and evening. Flash flood warnings and tornado warnings will be posted throughout the day as needed. Winds may gust 40 to 70 mph or higher. Rainfall of 1” to 4” or more is possible.
Impacts to New Jersey
Heavy rainfall may result in localized flooding in urban areas, low-lying places, locations with poor drainage, roadways, waterways, and where rainfall is heaviest. Coastal areas may experience inundation at times of high tide. High winds and gusts may cause power outages and tree damage. Monitor local weather forecasts today for updates and for current tornado and flood warnings.
The following message is from Beverly Public Safety:
This storm appears to be mostly a rain event with gusty winds in our area but street flooding is a concern. All storm drain inlets have been cleared however, the first heavy rainfall will wash debris onto the grates creating flooding issues. Please stay indoors until the storm passes and do not drive through flooded areas.
If winds are over 40 mph we will pull our crews off the road until winds subside. No debris clearing will be performed during the storm for the safety of our crews. If trees or tree limbs are in the roadway call 911, do NOT approach the area due to possible power lines in the debris.
Please check our Emergency Management page for additional information on what to do in the case of an emergency.
