Warmer and unsettled this week, with a side of tidal flooding

/ April 5, 2020 at 11:38 PM

After a rather pleasant weekend, temperatures will begin to trend back above normal this week with chances of showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms each afternoon. Highs will be getting into the mid-80s by midweek, marking a return to that summer preview we were feeling toward the end of March. A cold front will move through the area sometime later this week, bringing a reduction in temperatures, but showers may yet stick around. It’s a fairly low confidence forecast looking toward next weekend with a fair bit of divergence in the models, so stay tuned for updates as things will undoubtedly need to be ironed out.

Coastal flooding possible at times of high tide this week

We’ll need to watch for the potential for salt water flooding at times of high tide this week thanks to onshore winds and Tuesday’s full “Super Pink” moon. Impacts to traffic should be minimized with most travel being halted, but those of you working in the hospital district will want to keep an eye on the tides throughout the week for potential salt water complications in that neck of the woods.
