(Monday, Sep. 05, 2016 | 10:14 am) - Due to the eastward track, impacts from Hermine have been relatively limited through this point. Wind and rain will be limited again today. As Hermine starts to track closer to the coast on Tuesday, conditions will become breezy. The highest winds are expected pre-dawn Tuesday through Tuesday evening, however gusts even at the coast are only expected up to 35-40 mph with most locations experiencing gusts of 25-35mph. An occasional shower is possible, but any steady rain is expected to remain off shore.
Tides have been running around 0.75-1.25 feet above normal across the coast. The highest surge is expected from noon today through 6AM tomorrow which will have the greatest impact on the high tides over the next two hours as well as tonight. Minor flood levels are expected to be reached in additional to high waves and the potential for significant beach erosion. Tides should then begin to lower by Tuesday afternoon.
In honor of Earth Day and in conjunction with Opening Day for spring sports, the Rumson Environmental Commission organized its first ever “Rumson! Clean-up Your Parks Day” on Saturday April 22. Over 60 town residents from Forrestdale, RFH, Holy Cross and Rumson Country Day School came out to help clean up five of Rumson’s parks used for spring sports: Meadowridge Park, Victory Park, Rogers Park, Piping Rock Park & Riverside Park. The Rumson Department of Public Works provided bags and gloves and the Rumson Environmental Commission provided prizes for the most unique garbage finds.
