Calming winds and clearing skies… We will start with clouds and drizzle this morning but the sunshine should return for this afternoon. A few isolated showers are possible but most areas will see little to no measurable rain. It will still be breezy today but not as windy or gusty as the past few days. High tides will reach “minor” flooding levels this afternoon. High tides today will be near the 4:00 to 5:00 hours. As winds relax our high tide levels will begin to return to normal. Expect more sunshine and lighter winds on Wednesday. Highs will remain in the low 70s today but will climb to near 80 later this week.
