(Monday, Jan. 26, 2015, 1:20pm) - THE COASTAL STORM WILL START ORGANIZING THIS EVENING AND THAT SHOULD LEAD TO PERSISTENTLY STEADIER SNOWS WITH THE HEAVIEST AFTER MIDNIGHT. WHILE EXACT PLACEMENT OF HEAVIEST BANDING IS UNCERTAIN, WE CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THAT THE SHORE GETS INTO HEAVY 2"-4" PER HOUR BANDING OF SNOW FOR A PERIOD TONIGHT. NE to N wind 20-35 mph, gusts to 40-50 mph leading to widespread blowing and drifting. Night-time accum of 8-14 inches. EXPECT SNOW TO CONTINUE THRU TUESDAY (THOUGH NOT AS HEAVY) AND FINALLY IT WINDS DOWN TUES EVENING. TOTAL ACCUMULATION OF UP TO 16"-24". SIGNIFICANT COASTAL FLOODING IS LIKELY AND THE WORST IS THE NIGHT-TIME HIGH TIDE, REACHING UP TO 8 FEET.
The Rumson Police Department will by hosting a bike rodeo for the children of Rumson on Tuesday, May 27th from 3:30PM until 6:30PM at the Forrestdale School basketball court. The purpose of the event is to promote safe bicycle riding habits, through the use of simulated scenarios.
The event is going to include several different traffic cone courses, which we will be setting up in the parking lot of Forrestdale School. We also plan on including a bicycle inspection station, as well as a helmet fitting station.
Additional agencies including the Rumson Fire Department and Rumson EMS will also be represented at the event and members of the Rumson PTO and Rumson Police Department will be there assisting with the event.
Bike Haven of Fair Haven will also be in attendance assisting with both bicycle inspections and the helmet fitting station. At the conclusion of the event two bicycles, one donated by the Borough and one by the PBA, will be raffled to the participating children.
The event will be advertized via e-mail blasts from the schools, as well as fliers distributed throughout the town. While the rodeo has been held in the past, this year will be the first that the police department has organized the entire event.
We anticipate that this event will be a great success and excitedly extend an invitation for you, and your family and friends, to attend the event. Please let us know if anyone would like to volunteer at the event, as volunteers are still needed to assist at the various stations. We would greatly appreciate you spreading the word about this event and hope you are all able to attend!
