Friday August 20 2021

Heavy rain has been falling overnight and this morning. Some of the bands have been very slow moving or even stalled. The bulk of our rain will be this morning, but more showers and storms will make a return this afternoon and Saturday.

Tropical Storm Henri will turn up the coast and become a hurricane. The path may hit New England, but still impact our weather and waves on Delmarva beaches.

Morning Surface Weather

This is part of a frontal boundary that is stuck here as Tropical Storm Henri (‘ahn Ree’) makes a turn up the east coast.

Henri is expected to become a Hurricane and make landfall on New England. 

Beaches: Rip Currents and periodic storms will make this a weekend to watch but not go in the water.

The highest waves will be well offshore from Delmarva, but will create Rip Currents. The path of the storm is expected to make landfall on Rhode Island or Massachusetts.



Beach Forecast

Rip Currents will be a concern for a few days.  Some improvement in the sky is expected on Sunday.

The notion of a wet weekend will actually be scattered storms. This will all be subject to how close or far Henri passes by.
