A pretty quiet forecast on tap for the next couple of days as high pressure dominates the area. We’re still dealing with some effects from Jose. Those effects are tidal flooding, coastal flooding and rough surf. The next high tide is at 11 am at Sewell’s point, so we could see some minor tidal flooding. Nuisance tidal flooding is possible into the end of the work week. Some patchy fog is possible this morning, so watch out for areas of reduced visibility. Plenty of sunshine with highs in the low and mid 80s. Dewpoints will be near 70, making it feel on the humid side.

Very similar conditions to end the work week. Expect partly cloudy skies, highs in the 80s and low rain chances.

A fantastic weekend in store! We’re forecasting low rain chances, few clouds and highs in the lower 80s. Our attention turns to Maria heading into next week. We will be keeping a close eye on the storm. As of now, the forecast track has Maria heading in our general direction. It is still too far out to tell if the storm will go closer to the coast or further out to sea.
