Coastal Storm Warning - March 7, 2018

As of this morning, we are conīŦdent in the occurrence of a coastal system on Wednesday, March 7, 2018; however, more mixing with rain is becoming an issue with end totals. We are still looking at rain arriving this evening, which may mix at times with snow before going to all rain during the pre-dawn hours.

For tomorrow morning, rain looks to become steadier, and eventually switches over to snow as colder air wraps in behind the coastal low. Once things switch to snow mid-late afternoon, we could be looking at heavy snow before things wrap up in the evening. Unless things come down heavily, paved surfaces may end up just wet (or spotty slushy coatings). If rain lasts longer on Wednesday, we may be looking at an even shorter period of snow, which could limit accumulations altogether.

Outside of the snow threat, gusty winds (not as bad as the last coastal storm) can lead to a few downed trees and power outages.

We expect rain to begin Tuesday evening and be steady through Wednesday afternoon, mixing with snow from 2 to 5 p.m. A coating to 1 inch of snow is predicted. Winds 10-25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. 

Tuesday Evening High Tide - 11:02 p.m.
Wednesday Morning High Tide: 11:19 a.m.
Wednesday Evening High Tide - 11:52 p.m.
