No, that wasn’t quite a full moon rising over White Street in Red Bank Wednesday night. But it will be full on Thursday, the first of two such events in March; the second, a so-called blue moon, will appear on March 31.

According to the National Weather Service, a flood watch is in effect for low-lying and coastal areas during the period, when several inches of rain are expected, along with wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour as part of a “major coastal storm.”
