Pop Up Weather Weekend, Going To Be Nautical On The Water

Bill Dorey took a shot of this cloud dropping rain over Broadkill Beach this afternoon.  Pop up storms have been drenching areas with quick heavy rain, but nothing too bad so far.  The thunder and lightening have been isolated.  This heat wave is going to end with a pressure system moving in tomorrow.  We are going to see strong winds over the weekend.  Anyone surprised?

Hopefully it won’t be too bad on the beach and it will keep the flies down to a minimum.  We shall see as the weekend progresses Dela-weather likes to change constantly.  If you get into a pop up on the beach just hang tight, it will be over before you can leave and air up.  Keep na eye on your weather apps
