Forecast for Wednesday, October 9, 2013

An area of high pressure shifting offshore will produce an onshore flow for the remainder of the week. As the area of high pressure slips away, an area of low pressure will slowly ride up the coast. This will result in an extended period of rain and drizzle. In addition, the pressure gradient will increase and the northeast wind will turn gusty, particularly Thursday and Friday. The strongest wind gusts will be along the coast. It may take until Tuesday for the clouds to erode as the onshore flow should ease by then with the high actually building back to the south. During the period of onshore flow, coastal/tidal flooding will be likely and seas will be rough with high waves. Gale force winds are possible across our offshore waters.
