Winter Weather and Flood Warnings For Monday

The National Weather Service issues advisories for possible snow and flooding.

The National Weather Service issued advisories Sunday warning of winter weather and coastal flooding for Monday.

The forecast calls for a mix of rain and snow to start after 1 a.m. Monday and continue through the day and night. There's some chance that 1 to 3 inches of snow could accumulate Monday on unpaved surfaces, according to the National Weather Service forecast. But with a high of 39 degrees, the day will end with all rain.

Snow could resume again after 8 p.m. Monday but with little chance of significant accumulation.

At the same time, a coastal flood advisory warns of the possibility of minor tidal flooding between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Monday. High tide will be just before 8 p.m. for Eastern Monouth County.

Residents on flood-prone streets should consider moving their cars.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts a Monday evening high tide at about 5.75 feet above mean low water (MLW). Six feet above MLW is considered the threshold for minor tidal flooding.

The advisory warns that more flooding could occur at high tide on Tuesday morning.

The winter weather advisory is in effect from midnight Monday to midnight Tuesday.

During the mix of rain and snow, sustained northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph are expected — with gusts up to 40 mph, especially in coastal areas.

The ocean water temperature is 41 degrees, and surf is expected to build throughout Monday with offshore winds on Tuesday potentially providing good surf conditions.

The sun is expected to return on Tuesday and Wednesday with high temperatures in the mid-40s.
