Tracking rain, wind and flooding for the weekend… Rain will move in from south to north overnight with cloudy skies and lows in the upper 40s.
Make sure you have your umbrella on Friday. We will see mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers for most of the day. Highs will return to the low and mid 50s. Winds will pick up, north at 10 to 15 mph.

We will see very strong winds, N/NE 25 to 35 with gusts to 45+ mph. The strong winds and rough surf will bring us coastal flooding through the weekend and into early next week. “Minor” to “Moderate” level tidal flooding is likely Saturday and Sunday during times of high tide.
