RED BANK: ISAIAS MAY SPARE AREA ITS WORST

isiais-rainfall-forecast-080420-500x399-6607807With about a quarter-inch of rain falling, the Greater Red Bank Green saw only a hint of Tropical Storm Isaias Monday night, according to the National Weather Service. Few JCP&L customers were without power Tuesday morning.

The region may be further spared the drenching worst of the storm Tuesday, according to NWS forecasts, though dangerous winds are still expected.

Hours before the storm made landfall in North Carolina overnight, it regained hurricane strength, with sustained winds of 75 miles per hour. As it tracks north along the Atlantic coast Tuesday, “the main threats” to New Jersey are three-to-six inches of rain, resulting in widespread flash flooding, and wind gusts of 65 to 75 mph, the NWS forecast.

But as the above graphic shows, the threat lies mainly west of the New Jersey Turnpike. The Greater Red Bank Green is expected to see about an inch of rain, according to the the NWS forecast.

Governor Phil Murphy declared a state of emergency in New Jersey that became effective Tuesday at 5 a.m. Though mandatory travel restrictions were not imposed, Murphy asked motorists to stay off the roads unless necessary.
