April Nor'easter Dumps Heavy Rain On Jersey Shore
Up to 4 inches of rain is expected
A spring nor'easter with rain and high winds soaked the Jersey Shore on Sunday and continued to churn on Monday morning.
From the shore north through New York City and into southern New England, up to 4 inches of rain is expected to fall by mid-morning on Monday. A coastal flood warning has been declared for the area.
The National Weather Service issued a coastal flood warning for the area on Sunday but predicted the storm calming to a drizzle this evening.
This morning's forecast calls for areas of drizzle before 10 a.m., then isolated showers between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., then scattered sprinkles after 2 p.m. Cloudy, with a high near 55. Breezy, with a west wind between 14 and 23 mph.
For the evening, scattered sprinkles before 8 p.m., said the National Weather Service. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 39. Breezy, with a west wind between 13 and 20 mph.
"Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause elevated levels on small creeks and streams, and ponding of water in urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well as other poor drainage areas and low lying spots," warned the National Weather Service, which still has hazardous weather outlooks in place for Burlington and Middlesex counties and elsewhere.
