Damp and dreary weather will continue this week as several low pressure systems move through. In addition to the occasional rain, we also will be dealing with some coastal flooding.
A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect Thursday night (between 7-10pm) as we enter a new moon phase along with steady onshore winds. Tides will run around 1 foot above normal which will cause some road closures in the usual areas on the island. The surf will also be increasing. Waves run up to 4-6 feet on Thursday as the low pressure system moves offshore.
Widespread heavy showers and t’storms are expected Thursday morning.

The sunniest day will be Saturday as high pressure briefly builds in. Temperatures will climb into the 70s inland but southerly wind could keep us slightly cooler.
Clouds will return on Sunday as the next low pressure system moves our way. Temperatures will be in the upper 60s on Sunday and possibly well into the 70s on Memorial Day. More showers and possible t’storms are expected during the day on Sunday and even Memorial Day.
