Tropical Storm Warning
Our area is currently under a Tropical Storm Warning from The National Weather Service:
Tropical Storm Isaias will approach Delmarva by late tonight and pass through the region on Tuesday. Impacts should diminish by Wednesday morning. The main threats with this system are heavy rainfall leading to flash flooding and some river flooding, strong winds, especially near the coast, minor to potentially moderate coastal flooding, and dangerous marine conditions. The primary concern is flash flooding due to 4 to 6 inches of rain. Four to six inches of rain would result in flash flooding. Strong winds along the New Jersey and Delaware coasts with wind gusts of 65 to 75 mph are possible, and wind gusts inland will range from 55 to 65 mph. Secondary threats include minor to locally moderate coastal flooding, especially in Chesapeake Bay, as well as the potential for isolated tornadoes. Dangerous rip currents and 8 to 12 foot seas are also expected over the waters.
