QUEENS, N.Y. — A passing nor'easter has already caused coastal flooding in Queens, Long Island and parts of New Jersey, and will for the rest of the day.
Combined with high tide, the winter storm's offshore winds and position will slam coastal areas.
A coastal flood warning was issued early Monday for Nassau and Suffolk counties, southern Westchester, the Bronx and New Jersey shore.
A coastal advisory was sent out for southern Fairfield and New Haven in Connecticut and Queens, which has already seen flooding in Rockaway and Broad Channel. Both alerts will remain intact in those places until 1 p.m. Monday.
Police have had to close some streets in Atlantic City, Absecon, Neptune Township and Union Beach.
Widespread moderate coasting flooding is possible during high tide. There's also a chance for beach erosion as wave heights build to 8 to 12 feet.
The storm will bring up to 6 inches of snow on Long Island and 3 inches in parts of New York City and New Jersey.
