RED BANK: SUN TO SHINE AS DORIAN PASSES

After causing devastation in the Bahamas, Hurricane Dorian was lashing the Carolinas Friday morning and expected to track “well offshore” of the New Jersey coast as it heads northeast toward New England and Canada, according to the National Weather Service

For the Greater Red Bank Green, that means gusty winds, high surf and rip tides along the Atlantic coast, but otherwise no adverse impact. In fact, the forecast shows that after a day of scattered showers Friday, the region will see lots of sun over the weekend.
