Thanksgiving Nor’Easter expected in Highlands


Another nor’easter is expected to form and hover along the East coast during the week of Thanksgiving (Nov. 18 to 23). The storm raises travel and coastal flooding concerns according to Accuweather.com

It could kick up seas and near-coast wave action in Sandy Hook. Such a storm would raise the risk of beach erosion and minor coastal flooding, especially during times of high tide. – Like Highlands needs *more* flooding..

There is the potential for water levels to rise to between 1 and 3 feet above normal tides. Good news is, the first quarter phase of the moon should not have a significant impact on water levels. Tides are generally the highest a day or two after the full and new moon phases.
