The Jersey Shore may experience some of the most voluminous rainfall totals during Monday’s storms, produced by the remnants of what was once Hurricane Delta.

According to the National Weather Service, a long period of widespread showers will continue to impact the region through Tuesday, producing 2 to 3 inches of rain. While flash flooding is not anticipated, nuisance flooding in low lying areas and or areas with poor drainage will be possible.

Widespread minor tidal flooding is possible with the high tide on Monday afternoon and evening for the New Jersey coast. On Barnegat Bay, locally, high tides will occur at 8:48 a.m. and 8:59 p.m.

Coastal areas will be dealing with an east wind blowing from 25 to 30 m.p.h., with gusts as high as 40 m.p.h.

The rain will continue until about 11 p.m. Monday, after which showers may linger through the early-morning hours. Those showers and cloudy skies may last until about 8 a.m. before skies clear, producing an othersise partly cloudy day Tuesday with a high of 69-degrees.
