A nor’easter is forecast to affect the Jersey Shore Monday into Tuesday night this coming week, producing heavy rain and strong winds, but no snow with temperatures remaining in the 40s and 50s.
The National Weather Service is predicting the storm will begin Monday as clouds and showers roll in during the afternoon, with the rain becoming steady and heavier overnight into Tuesday. The heavy rain will continue during the day on Tuesday and taper off as the evening approaches, forecasters say. Temperatures on Monday will top out near 43 degrees while on Tuesday they will rise to 51 after an overnight low around 40.
The high temperatures mean the nor’easter will not produce any snow in New Jersey.
A Hazardous Weather Outlook released by the National Weather Service’s office in Mount Holly calls for minor tidal flooding along the oceanfront starting on Sunday along with wind gusts of about 45 m.p.h. Minor tidal flooding will continue during the high tide cycles on Monday and Tuesday with the possibility of moderate flooding at times. The winds will continue to gust – at least briefly – to 45 m.p.h. throughout the course of the storm.
