The Eastern Shore is expected to see more heavy rains and gust winds as we head into the weekend. The storm is coming from the South and contains some of the moisture from Hurricane Willa. A quick moving area of low pressure will move across our area Friday afternoon into Friday night. Moderate to occasionally heavy rain will develop Friday afternoon and Friday night. An east to northeast wind will potentially gust to 40 mph Friday night. While the storm isn’t expected to be major, damage from Hurricane Michael could be compounded by more rain and winds. Winds will switch back west on Saturday, before the system pushes into New England late Saturday night.
Rough surf and above-normal tides are likely as the storm moves northward along our coast. Minor coastal flooding is likely during one or two high tide cycles this weekend.
After this weekend’s nor’easter, temperatures should remain normal with highs in the upper 50s to low 60s. Breezy conditions are continued to be forecast for the Eastern Shore for the foreseeable future.
