Hurricane Jose is staying far off the New Jersey coast, but pounding surf is eating away at Jersey Shore beaches.
The eye of the storm should pass by the New Jersey coast from Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Coastal flooding and high surf advisories are up along the coast overnight into Wednesday.
The surf is overrunning some streets in North Wildwood and the basins behind the Ventnor dune under construction by the Army Corps of Engineers have again filled, though not much rain has fallen.
Jose's eventual path is confounding forecasters.
Instead of continuing to travel northeast on a path toward Cape Cod as was previously predicted, the storm will likely pivot Thursday morning.
Then it will slowly fish hook south through Sunday morning, when it should be just south of Cape May, but far out to sea.
For now, it is too soon to tell where the storm heads next after Sunday.
