Near-normal temperatures and some sun for Wednesday

/ January 12, 2021 at 9:51 PM

We’ll warm up a bit on Wednesday as a little more sun works into the area with high pressure at the surface. Cloud cover will be reinforced at times by some upper-level energy moving through the area, but despite that, we should touch 60° in the afternoon, which is right on the warm side of a normal high temperature for mid-January.

Watch for patches of fog in the morning causing dips in visibility at times. Fog should mix out by 9am, giving way to the aforementioned partly sunny skies.

Very minor salt water flooding possible Wednesday morning

With the new moon at perigee, minor coastal flooding will be possible around the 8:01am high tide. Winds going around to the southwest should blunt a more widespread bout of coastal flooding, but once again, expect some salt water on roads around The Citadel and the Joe for a few hours tomorrow morning.
