Expect Minor Tidal Flooding Into Monday
The coastal flood warning is until 3 PM this afternoon. All the usual low spots are filling with water due to tidal flooding. The full moon we just had and the winds are keeping water in the inland bays and causing flooding around the area. I would expect to last the next few high tides due to the heavy winds and storm surge we are still seeing. This is especially an issue for the inland bay communities. Once the bays fill with excess water, everyone sees minor flooding. If you are on the side that wind is pushing water towards you, it will be a little worse. Remember this is saltwater it is not a good idea to drive through. Another storm may be hitting us Tuesday.
