Thursday the 13th Weather Update, Go With The Flo

 

Old Coast Guard tower base exposed even more during Gordon’s remnants

 It hasn’t rained in at least 10 minutes, we could use more … not.  Florence hits the Carolinas today or tonight.  We are going to see some affects, but not like predicted a week ago, which is great news.  If you are upset that you think the weather people suck at their jobs, be happy you don’t have a Cat 4 hurricane knocking on your door.  We put up what NOAA puts out, and we do have some things to be concerned about.  For example high tide is at noon which is about 4 hours from now and the waves have been pushing up to the dune lines on some beaches.  That is going to increase, by how much we are not sure.

   

The sand cliff is almost seven feet tall from the effects of Gordon at Broadkill beach

 We are going to see some of the same conditions we had last weekend with Gordon remnants.  Solid east winds for a week with heavy swells and waves.  The inland bay communities and Delaware Bay communities will get some nautical conditions, like flooding and storm surge waves.  The inland bays just started draining, the marshes around Broadkill river as well.  The ground is beyond saturated.  We are going to get outer band winds and rain.  As if we needed more rain.   

I have yet to see anyone talking about any remnants of Florence and that is because her track is still unknown after landfall.  She could literally make a loop d loop and then head north, towards us.  Nothing is set in stone with a hurricane, they are powerful and hard to predict after landfall.  I have been through the eye of four hurricanes.  It is wild and scary all at the same time.

Fish On!
