From meteorologist Dan Zarrow:

An additional 1-3 feet of water will cause minor to moderate flooding of tidal waterways for several consecutive high tide cycles: Monday and possibly Tuesday as well. That’s enough to flood vulnerable roads and low-lying areas, and possibly cause property damage. This degree of rising water and flooding is just beyond “usual points”. The latest tidal patterns show Monday night’s high tide the the top of the storm.

—High risk of rip currents Stay out of the ocean.

—Observation of coastal flooding posted for coastal counties for Monday as moderate tidal flooding becomes likely.

When will the rain stop in Ocean County?

The rain will stop and the sun will show, according to Dan Zarrow on Thursday! Bring the sun. Can you imagine this rain and wind for the next few days? I hope it won’t continue to rain all day and all night. All the beautiful autumn leaves are falling and blowing way too soon. They are already all over the floor.
