    Residents wait wearily as Water Dept. takes months to replace sewers and mains
    On the 2300 block of South Mole Street, a temporary "No Parking" sign is stapled to a telephone poll, banning cars during street work scheduled between "1/10/18" and "T.B.D." As in, "to be determined." With Memorial Day just around the bend, residents say they're still waiting for the city to determine when the construction will end.

For those going to the beach this Memorial Day Weekend, please keep the following in mind: It`s quite a bit different swimming in the ocean versus a pool. One of the main threats to swimmers in the ocean are rip currents. A rip current is a small-scale surf zone current moving away from the beach. If you`re a weak swimmer, it is recommended to swim with a strong swimmer and/or a flotation device nearby. Remember, a low risk of rip currents (like the risk forecast for today) does not mean no risk! Life threatening rip currents often still occur near jetties, reefs, and piers. There were 8 rip-current fatalities last year alone in New Jersey. The vast majority of these rip current victims swam at unguarded beaches. Always swim in the presence of a life guard! The latest rip current forecast is available at www.weather.gov/beach/phi/

This high-resolution visible imagery from the GOES-16 satellite captured an unique wave cloud structure called an undular bore that formed off the New Jersey coast late this afternoon. The undular bore formed as rain-cooled air that developed out ahead of a line of showers and thunderstorms (also known as a gust front or outflow boundary) moved off the coast and into stable marine air (because the ocean waters are still very cold).
