RED BANK: FOGGY, SOGGY DAYS AHEAD

Goldfish crackers dropped on West Front Street in Red Bank during Monday’s persistent rains seemed to reflect the soggy mood of this week’s weather.

Expect heavy fog Tuesday morning, followed by a mostly cloudy day, one that could also bring rain and thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service. That’s pretty much what the extended forecast includes, too; check it out below.

As for Hurricane Florence, it’s now expected to produce a life-threatening storm surge and damaging winds along the coastlines of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, but “impacts” are still possible in New Jersey, the NWS says.¬†(Photo by Trish Russoniello. ¬†Click to enlarge.)
