I downloaded Saiflow's models for the next 24 hours for New Jersey. Here is a sequence starting from early am through tomorrow evening. They are models so take them with a grain of salt.
The wind velocity is ugly but may not be above a Category 1(I hope less). The really scary thing about this storm is how slow it's moving. It's big, fat and lumbering. The worrying thing is how wave height and speed will build over that period. The longer the wind blows at high speed, the bigger the seas and the more viloent the waves. Even today there are high winds predicted offshore this afternoon. The concern about the damage this storm could do along the shore should not be underestimated.
