New Jersey Coast Could See Minor Flooding from Nor’easter

Rough surf could cause beach erosion along the part of the shore still rebuilding a year after Sandy

New Jersey residents living along the coast are being advised to brace for possible flooding through Friday as a slow-moving nor'easter brings bands of wind-driven heavy rain. 

Rough surf could also cause beach erosion in areas still rebuilding nearly a year after Sandy.

A flood advisory is in effect for New Jersey through early Friday evening, after the high tide cycle ends at 1:30 p.m. Swells could be as high as 6 to 9 feet.

Forecasters say vulnerable shore roads could see flooding, but there is not expected to be a significant threat to property. 

Heavy rain could also contribute to road flooding.

The first high tide cycle along the Jersey Shore passed Thursday with no reports of flooding. Flood advisories were canceled for New York City and the Long Island Sound.

Overcast skies and periods of rain are expected to linger through Friday, when the high temperature will reach the low to mid-60s.
