Tropical Storm Warning Issued for Hamilton/Mercer Area

Tropical Storm Isaias

Mercer County is under a tropical storm warning as Isaias crawls up the Eastern Seaboard, preparing to lash the state with up to six inches of rain and possible flash flooding and storm surge beginning as soon as late Monday night.

Tropical Storm Isaias is ramping up to be at or near hurricane strength before it makes landfall in the Carolinas on Monday night, according to the National Hurricane Centerโ€™s latest advisory.

Forecasters said Isaias threatens dangerous winds and storm surge, with heavy rainfall likely tonight and Tuesday.

New Jersey โ€” especially southern parts of the state โ€” could see some scattered thunderstorms, including downpours as early as this evening and through the start of the overnight, though the core of the Isaias will hammer New Jersey during the daylight hours of Tuesday.
