Today’s NWS forecast has reduced the amount of rain we will receive this week, but the forecast increased the amount of coastal flooding we will experience.
Our rain forecast is now:
Winds are forecast to be 20 – 25mph from the SE with gusts 30-35mph on Wednesday and Thursday leading to tides 3.5’ above normal Tuesday and Thursday.
There is also a small threat of strong to severe thunderstorms, both Tuesday afternoon and evening, and again on Wednesday. Damaging winds and tornadoes will be the primary threats.
