Storm Dodging Saturday

Small craft advisory into late tonight, gale watch for Sunday morning.  We will be dodging storms all day.  Keep an eye on your radar apps for pop-up storms.  There will be pockets of sunshine, then  deluges of rain depending on where you are located.  It is pouring at the beaches right now and route1 is backing up

Rehoboth Beach at 945 AM, waves are increasing in size

The wave action has increased since 8 AM this morning, expect that to pick up as well as the day progresses.  Winds are picking up as well.  Heavy rains will create flash flood situations and ponding on roads .   Keep in mind we are in new moon tides so they will be higher than normal and waves will come up onto the beach farther.  Surf fishing is going to be interesting this afternoon see you in the sandbox.
