Scattered storms will likely last through the evening with the potential for some heavy downpours. Localized flooding will be possible due to the wet weather later on and also due to the fact that the ground is already saturated from all the recent rain the past few days.
Higher than normal King Tides begin on Thursday and last through Saturday, September 11th.
Coastal saltwater flooding will be possible around high tide times along vulnerable low-lying areas. King tides can be exacerbated by rainfall which is expected Thursday afternoon.
High tides can rise by a foot or more during King Tides, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It’s a phenomenon caused when Earth’s northern hemisphere is closest to the sun, and the sun and moon align to create gravitational pull which brings about higher tides than normal.
Friday will be another hot and steamy day with highs in the low 90s. Spotty storms will be possible but the highest storm chance will be over the interior due to the sea breeze.MORE NEWS: Rodney Rodriguez, Driver In High-Speed Crash That Killed 3, Finally Booked Into Jail
