Wind And Coastal Flood Advisory Now In Effect In Middlesex County

The storm is coming.  Already there has been some rain overnight.  Showers and storms along with gusty winds passed through on Saturday night into early Sunday morning bringing nearly a quarter of an inch to South Plainfield.  Another brief shower just pushed through Northern Middlesex County during the nine o’ clock hour, and brought 0.01 inches of rain.

Much more is coming though.  A more steady band of rain is slugging its way up north from South Jersey.  So things will continue to ramp up as the morning progresses.  Rainfall amounts are still forecast to be anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 inches around the Garden State.  Winds are also expected to be a factor.  The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Wind Advisory for the area.  Winds are expected to be sustained between 20 and 30 miles per hour with gusts in excess of 45 miles per hour.

The NWS office in Mount Holly has also issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for coastal areas in Middlesex County such as South Amboy, Perth Amboy, Sayreville, and Old Bridge.
