Black Pearl
blizzard of 2015, latest nam model

Latest NAM model for Sunday to Wednesday

This is the latest NAM model, we need to worry about Monday into Tuesday.    Will mostly be rain Sunday night into Monday morning for Delmarva.  We are in the 4 to 10 inch range in Sussex County and more up north. Very cold temperatures, dry snow and heavy winds will be a factor.  Minor coastal flooding is possible for Delaware.  The big concern is if this storm stalls over us we will see even more snow.  The coastal low will be a large factor for our area here along the coastline.  We could get slammed or just clipped.  If we do get socked in remember that first responders, linemen, hospital personnel, and many people will be required to get to work.  If you don’t need to go anywhere, stay home so these folks can do their jobs, and to keep the amount of people in the way to a minimum.
Play it safe and smart.

If you get snowed in that would be a great time to sign up for the Delaware Surf Fishing All Species Fishing Tournament.
