Yesterday was another windy day, but it was better than the day before. Today will continue with the “improvement” trend…as winds will be a bit lower. Expect a North wind ranging from 15-25mph G. 30mph.
Although the winds will be lighter, they will still be strong enough (and based on the wind direction) to lead to near Minor Tidal Flooding…especially around today’s High Tide cycles.
Notice how the tides decrease below nuisance (below 4.0′) for Monday as the winds relax (graphic below)…great news!
However, aside from tides, the surf is crashing ashore…leading to over-wash and beach erosion in some areas. Therefore, use caution if you live near the ocean, and be on guard for rising water around High tides for all coastal areas.
The winds will be lighter for Monday courtesy of high pressure ridging into our area from out of Canada & the deep low pressure area moving further out to sea. So, expect a lovely start to the workweek. However, it’ll be a cool day with 40s expected.
A new area of low pressure will slide into our area by Tuesday afternoon and evening. It will also be attached to a warm front. So, expect scattered showers for Tuesday (and Wednesday) with slightly warmer temps.
For now, Friday into Saturday looks dry with temps near 50°….stay tuned. FYI… Daylight Saving Time Begins (Spring Forward) on Sunday, March 11th at 2AM. This will bring a later sunset!
