Good Sunday evening NWS Mount Holly FB friends, residents and travelers to NJ, DE, e parts of both PA and MD. Coastal flooding, mostly minor and mainly along the NJ and DE coasts may occur again with during the Tuesday and Wednesday morning high tide cycles. Otherwise, occasionally unsettled weather occurs early this week, especially near and south of Philly and Atlantic City through the Delmarva Peninsula. A period of much much colder weather should arrive sometime Friday and could result in a widespread hard freeze and frost next weekend (11th-12th). Calendar day average departures on the negative side of normal could be the largest since early Sept.

A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for this morning along the coasts of New Jersey and Delaware. The high tides associated with the full moon along with a developing onshore flow will cause minor flooding this morning. Minor flooding is again possible with Sunday morning's high tide. Here is our forecast graphic for the tide gauge at Lewes, Delaware. The blue line represents the observed water levels and the black line with the small boxes is the forecast. The water level is expected to reach the minor flood level this morning and again on Sunday morning. This graph and others like it can be found on our web site under Rivers and Lakes (even though in this case it is neither).
