Sunday’s First Warning Forecast: Areas of fog to start, isolated shower possible

Posted at 11:31 PM, Sep 16, 2017

Watch out for some patchy fog to start the day on Sunday. A 25 percent chance for an isolated shower. Most folks will stay dry. Temperatures will warm to the lower 80s. We will have persistent northeasterly winds over the next couple of days, which means some tidal flooding is possible Sunday and Monday. We also have a moderate risk of rip currents and will have that risk through Tuesday. Hurricane Jose will track northward off the southeast and Mid-Atlantic coast. This will give us an elevated risk of rip currents through Tuesday.

Clouds and sunshine to start the work week. We will continue with gusty winds, rough surf and possible tidal flooding.

Tonight: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s. Winds: E 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy. Slight chance for an isolated shower. Becoming breezy. Highs in the lower 80s. Winds: NE 10-15 mph.
