War On The Shore Weather
GALE WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM EDT THIS EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY AFTERNOON Obviously we have been watching this weather closely. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the panhandle area. My friends in Pensacola did fine but other areas did not. The damage down there is pretty bad and they are just now barely getting a handle on things. The videos and news reports have been surreal of the damage.
Up here in “The Delmarva” (Weather Channel called us that) we are sitting in bathtub warm rain for the next 24 hours with a lot of wind. This will increase over night into tomorrow afternoon. Flash flooding will be an issue. Then it will cool off and we are supposed to see cool weather and sun on Saturday. I am good with that for a surf fishing tournament any day of the week. Last year it was overcast and rainy with warm water in the surf. Windy with mildly heavy surf on a sunny day.
Check the tide line or wrack line when you get to the beach for high tide. I will put up a fishing report in a little while.
