A slow-moving coastal storm is expected to linger along the Jersey Shore, bringing gale-force winds and minor flooding Wednesday through Saturday, according to a report issued by the National Weather Service.
Monmouth County could get 1.75 to 2 inches of rain, according to the report, issued Tuesday afternoon.
Forming from the remnants of Tropical Storm Karen, the storm is expected to generate ocean waves of six to eight feet, resulting in “minor to moderate beach erosion.”
The forecast prompted Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long to tweet, “Nooooo.”
