Jose Meanders Offshore, Maria Next?

Jose will continue to spin well off NJ coast which will keep battering the beaches through the weekend. Moderate tidal flooding will still be a problem Wednesday morning during high tide...

Jose Will Affect Our Area On Tuesday

Jose will pass well east of the NJ coast but the effects will still be felt in Ocean City. Jose looking more like a Nor'easter than a Hurricane, will make for a windy and wet Tuesday. As a result, a tropical storm watch is posted for the entire NJ coast for the potential of tropical storm force gusts. Even though Jose will pass over 200 miles offshore, it will be close enough to give us a some rain and gusty winds for Tuesday...

Jose Could Get Too Close For Comfort Next Week

Jose has been spinning out in the Atlantic for over 10 days caught between systems. As we move into the weekend, the upper air pattern will finally decide Jose's final path. Computer models have been showing that Jose would be far enough the coast to avoid any significant impacts to our coast. However, latest computer runs have been indicating that Jose could get close enough to get more than just rough surf and rip currents...

Irma To Strike Florida This Weekend, What Does It Mean For...

Major Hurricane Irma is set to strike Florida this weekend and move up the coast. The big question is...what does it mean for us? The track of Irma will ride along the Florida coast or directly through the middle of the state. Irma will take some time to wind down and could still remain a hurricane by the time it reaches Georgia. Irma will weaken further as it moves deep into the Southeastern U.S. Heavy Rain and hurricane force gusts are possible even up into Atlanta...

Major Hurricane Irma Threatens East Coast

Hurricane Harvey was the first major hurricane to strike the U.S. Mainland in over 10 years and now we are faced with possibly another major hurricane striking the U.S. This time it could be the East Coast. While we are still days away from determining if and where Irma will strike, last computers models are not printing a pretty picture. Hurricane Irma already a major hurricane is forecast to strengthen even further before it gets closer to the U.S. Computer models are showing high confidence that Irma will affect parts of the Northern Leeward Islands Tuesday and then continue to track towards the Bahamas by the end of the week...

Sunny 2nd Half Of The Weekend

A rare summertime coastal storm is set to strike our area later Friday into Saturday with periods of heavy rain and flooding. This storm, similar to a fall or winter-like Nor'easter will track across the Mid-Atlantic and intensify offshore. Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the potential for 2-5" of rain which will cause street flooding. You should avoid parking in the usual flood prone streets. The heaviest rain will arrive late Friday and continue through Early Saturday morning...

Threat of T’Storms Possible for Night In Venice

It's that time of year again for the annual Night in Venice and we will be crossing our fingers hoping the weather will cooperate the parade and fireworks. The good news is that temperatures on Saturday will not be as hot, but high humidity remains. The bad news is that we run the risk of the potential of severe t'storms Saturday night...

Warmer and More Humid Holiday Weekend

After a stretch of sunny, mainly dry and pleasant weather, humidity is returning for the holiday weekend. High Pressure will build offshore pumping warmer and more uncomfortable conditions. Overall the weather will be near perfect for the beaches this weekend into the 4th...

Great Finish To The Weekend

A great finish to the weekend as high pressure will build in making way for drier, less humid conditions for Sunday. There will be a good deal of sunshine with temperatures around 80. UV Index will again be very high with ocean temperatures running a little chilly (in the low 60s) due to the upwelling.''

Remains Of Tropical Storm Cindy To Affect Our Area

It will be very tropical-like to start this weekend as we will see an increase in humidity ahead of a cold front that is tapping the remains of Tropical Storm Cindy. Friday & Saturday we can expect the threat of some locally heavy downpours. The remains of Tropical Storm Cindy dumped 6-12 inches of rain across the Gulf States is getting pulled up along a frontal system that is approaching our region. While we do not expect a washout, any scattered showers and storms can produce locally heavy downpours in a short amount of time. Fortunately, most of the precipitation will fall north and west of the area. Our best chances of rain will be Friday morning and Saturday morning...
