The final day of the summer season will be very nice with highs in the 80s and lots of sunshine for Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. This morning’s cloud cover should give way to party cloudy skies later in the day. 

Tidal flooding

We are still dealing with the effects of Post Tropical Storm Hermine, which is meandering 350 miles southeast of Alantic City, New Jersey.  

The biggest threat is going to be tidal flooding for coastal Delaware, New Jersey and in the Delaware River Bay.

High tides along the coast will occur between 10:30-11:30 a.m and again 10:30-11:30 p.m.

High tide in the back bays and the Delaware River will occur between 1:30-3:30 p.m. and again 2:00-4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.

While today’s weather will be generally good for beach-goers strong rip currents will be possible throughout the day.

Nice finish

The forecast the Philadelphia region calls for mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid 80s with winds 10-15 mph.

The coastal areas in both Delaware and New Jersey will also be quite nice with highs expected in the 80’s, partly cloudy skies and winds 15-25 mph for most areas.
