PM Update: Onshore flow, tidal flooding, more

Monday started out with sun and a pleasant autumnal breeze, but ended with clouds and an onshore flow. The dreary weather will continue through Tuesday as easterly winds increase ahead of a developing coastal system. The unsettled pattern looks to continue through the week. Here are your handy links to keep you updated in the world of weather:

  • Tidal Flooding is possible along the area shores, and the NWS has posted Coastal Flood Watches as a result. The onshore flow won’t help the situation. Winds gusting over 25 miles per hour are also expected.
  • Temperatures will fall into the 60’s tonight, but it will feel cooler as the onshore flow continues. We know we’ve said “onshore flow” a lot — but really, it will be noticeable.
  • A coastal storm will develop off the coast on Tuesday and may bring a period of rain to our area. The worst impacts are expected to skirt eastward, though, due to a developing system to our west.
  • Major flooding occurred in Phoenix — in fact, the wettest day on record there — with 3.29″ of new rain. Roads, interstates, property, etc were flooded in a significant event.
  • A major cold front is expected to pass the area, but not until this weekend. Unsettled weather is possible up until then.

Have a great Monday Night!
