First Warning Forecast: Cool, windy today with intervals of clouds, plus possible tidal flooding.

60s today and Monday with spotty rain possible. Welcome the first day of fall Tuesday as we transition to cooler temperatures. Cool mornings in the 50s, warmer afternoons near 80 are coming by midweek. In addition, low rain chances for much of the week as high pressure limits the rain potential.

Watch out for flooding around noon, which is high tide at Sewells Point. Coastal flood alerts are in place until Monday. Flooding, high winds, rough surf and dangerous rip currents will be possible through Monday. Strong northeast wind gusts are due in part to the pressure difference between an area of high pressure to our north and Hurricane Teddy out in the Atlantic.

Teddy is also bringing us coastal flooding, dangerous rip currents and rough surf. High tide at Sewells Point is 1 a.m. and 1 p.m. when we could potential reach moderate flood stage. Seek higher ground and avoid areas vulnerable to flooding during above normal tides. Some minor tidal flooding will be possible Tuesday, but the winds will finally relax.

Several dry days are becoming more likely for mid/late week with afternoon highs around 80.
