More rain, wind, and tidal flooding….As we move through the next few days, be prepared for more rain, wind and the potential for flooding around high tide. This weather is due in part to an area of low pressure that continues to meander offshore. So, as we go through today, expect more clouds than sun. A few scattered showers will be possible as well. We’re not expecting a washout though. Now, with this low offshore, we will continue to see a persistent northeast wind between 15 and 25 mph, which could produce some minor tidal flooding today, so keep that in mind. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s. Tonight, expect mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers. Lows will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

With low pressure still offshore into Thursday and Friday, we’ll still see the potential for showers and wind. More tidal flooding is expected under the northeast wind. By the weekend, we could see even more rain and gusty winds as low pressure moves a bit closer to the viewing area. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s through the weekend.
Today: More Clouds Than Sun. Chance of Showers (20-30%). Breezy. High temperatures in the mid 70s. Winds: NE 15-25+ mph.
Tonight: Mostly Cloudy. Chance of Showers (30%). Breezy. Low temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds: NE 10-20 mph.
