STAFFORD and LBI — The National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service have issued a Tropical Storm Warning in all of New Jersey. There is also a flash flood watch in effect from Isaias.
The "prime time" window for Isaias's peak impacts on New Jersey will be about 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday. It is expected that there will be 5-6 hours of nasty weather as it moves through the area.
There is a good possibility of severe thunderstorms and potential tornadoes.
Impacts could include damage to roofing and siding along with porches, awning and carports, according to the Weather Service. Trees may be snapped or uprooted, and some roads may become impassable from large debris, the Weather Service said.
“The main threats with this system involve heavy rainfall, strong winds, minor to moderate coastal flooding, along with high surf and dangerous rip currents,” the Weather Service said.
Additionally, the NJ Office of Emergency Management tweeted this morning that there is currently a moderate risk for dangerous rip currents today along the Jersey Shore due to Tropical Storm Isais. NJ OEM also reminded beach goers to keep your feet in the sand until the lifeguards are on the stand, and always swim in guarded areas.
