Delaware Beaches Flooding At High Tide


flooded beaches in delaware, sussex county, cape henlopen state park, naval crossing
Naval Crossing looking north at 9 am Saturday. High tide is around 11 AM for CHSP

The last couple of high tides the beaches have water almost to the dune line.  Just a heads up so you know to be wary at high tide which was at 10 AM today and low tide is at 4 Pm at Indian River Inlet.  You cold be in an area that is fine but water will be to the dune line on all sides of you so just keep that in mind.  The swales will fill in as the water crests the beach.  Currents are running fast too, so it is hard to hold bottom.  This is all from the full moon and an easterly swell, and as the winds switch to easterly it will be worse.  We have a small craft advisory until 6 PM tonight swells are 4 to 6 feet.  Winds will pick up tomorrow from the Northeast with gusts to 20 MPH.  The anglers boat fishing are catching striped bass on the Jersey side of the Delaware bay near Cape May, and a few at the overfalls area.  No migratory bass have shown up in the surf, but you won’t know unless you go so you are there when it happens.   Water temperatures are averaging fifty two degrees,we have perfect conditions, we just need fish.  Everyone have a great weekend and be safe out there.
