Cristobal visible off of Seaside Heights coast: If you looked over the ocean on the late afternoon of Monday July 21, 2008, you might have seen an odd high cloud formation. What you were seeing was actually the high cloud tops associated with Tropical Storm Cristobal, which was several hundred miles to the north and east of the Jersey Coast by this time. Tropical storms are large groups of thunderstorms that blow up high in the atmosphere, creating the unusual cloud formation, obviously visible. At this time, only a light southerly breeze from the outer, outer fringes of the large tropical storm were the effects seen in Seaside Heights, as it was a lovely and sunny day. This was far different than the day before when Cristobal was more to our south and east, and able to send feeder bands of rain and thunderstorms all the way to Ocean County.
