A persistent northeast wind, a nearly full moon and saturated soil will join forces to bring us higher-than-normal tides this evening. That may lead to a little nuisance flooding in areas that are prone to flooding. High tides tonight are between 10 pm and midnight.
We have seen more clouds than rain today and that has helped yesterday's drenching rains soak in. And overnight, we can expect mainly light showers with fog and mist and drizzle.
So don't be surprised by some fog for your Thursday morning commute. By the afternoon, scattered storms are a possibility along a stalled-out front. Some of these may produce some heavy downpours.
On Friday, an area of low pressure will cross the region, bringing the chance for more scattered storms with heavy downpours. Some of the stormy weather may linger into Saturday. But as that low migrates off shore, our rain chances will go down Saturday afternoon and especially Sunday and Monday.
