While the likelihood that the remnants of Hurricane Sandy slam into South Jersey continues to increase, the National Weather Service notes that the warnings of heavy rainfall, high winds and flooding “ultimately depend on the eventual track and evolution of the storm.”
According to the most recent severe weather briefing from the weather service, however, the odds of the storm hitting South Jersey increased over the past 24 hours, just as they had increased in the previous 24 hours. Furthermore, the risk that the storm will retain its tropical characteristics of heavy rain and wind also increased during that time period.
There is significant risk of flash flooding and major river flooding, the weather service says, along with the possibility of record river flooding.
Major coastal flooding also is likely. And, “If the center of the storm makes landfall along the New Jersey or Delaware coast, record coastal flooding is possible.,” according to the warning.
