Expect Minor Coastal Flooding For The Inland Bays

The flooding around the inland bays is not to bad. It will be the typical flooding we see from nor’easter conditions. These pictures were taken at 11:30 AM Sunday morning. High tide was still at least two hours away. Rosedale beach next to Gull Point in Riverdale has typical flooding.

Expect the next high tide (midnight” ish” but 2 AM for the back bays) to flood a little, then the winds switch north, then west, and we should be fine. Normal stuff we see during these storms. Fun trying to surf fish but the striped bass like that rough surf and water.
