For those going to the beach this Memorial Day Weekend, please keep the following in mind: It`s quite a bit different swimming in the ocean versus a pool. One of the main threats to swimmers in the ocean are rip currents. A rip current is a small-scale surf zone current moving away from the beach. If you`re a weak swimmer, it is recommended to swim with a strong swimmer and/or a flotation device nearby. Remember, a low risk of rip currents (like the risk forecast for today) does not mean no risk! Life threatening rip currents often still occur near jetties, reefs, and piers. There were 8 rip-current fatalities last year alone in New Jersey. The vast majority of these rip current victims swam at unguarded beaches. Always swim in the presence of a life guard! The latest rip current forecast is available at www.weather.gov/beach/phi/

This high-resolution visible imagery from the GOES-16 satellite captured an unique wave cloud structure called an undular bore that formed off the New Jersey coast late this afternoon. The undular bore formed as rain-cooled air that developed out ahead of a line of showers and thunderstorms (also known as a gust front or outflow boundary) moved off the coast and into stable marine air (because the ocean waters are still very cold).

Showers and storms remain possible today and Tuesday. Much more pleasant and dry weather settles into the region by the middle of the week with highs around 80° and lows around 60°.

Good Morning Facebook Friends! As you get ready to head out this morning, allow a little extra time for your morning commute as areas of fog, with visibility as low as one half mile, will be possible through mid morning. If you encounter fog, reduce speed and allow extra following distance with the vehicle in front of you. In addition, moderate to heavy rain could result in minor flooding of low lying areas across Delmarva. A flood watch continues for much of the region through the day Saturday as additional rounds of rain are expected. For a detailed forecast for your location, visit www.weather.gov/phi
