Gusts could hit 50 to 60 MPH. Some gusts could hit 70 MPH! Winds that strong will likey lead to damage to trees and power lines resulting in power outages. High seas and high moon tides along with strong and sustained East -Northeast winds will lead to Coastal Flooding,beach erosion and splash over through the high tide cycles today and tonight.
Rain will be heavy at times into Wednesday morning with 2 to 4 inches likely. A flood watch is effect through Tuesday afternoon. Light rain will continue on and off the rest of the week. Stay safe!
