    A lunar eclipse known as a red moon or "blood moon" was visible in the Tristate area on Tuesday.  It started early in the morning and was the first of four such lunar eclipses over the next year and a half. The moon turns red during this type of eclipse because the sunlight is refracted, similar to the way it is bent during a sunset.

    A forecast for the 2014 hurricane season predicts much-less than normal tropical activity this year but stronger storms forming closer to the United States.  “The very warm water off of the Eastern Seaboard is a huge problem," chief forecaster Joe Bastardi said.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - The threat of minor coastal flooding continues in New Jersey, especially along the south coast, as a slow-moving nor'easter lingers.

A coastal flood advisory remains in effect for the entire Jersey shore until 6 p.m. Saturday.

Heavy rain has not been much of a problem. However, onshore winds may keep back bays from draining and high surf can cause beach erosion.

Forecasters are predicting the possibility of widespread poor drainage and roadway flooding during high tide Friday and Saturday afternoon.
