...Scattered Marine Showers and Storms Moving Toward the Shore...

Increasing winds will become northeast and gather clouds and
atmospheric moisture to elevate rain chances to 50-60 percent today.
Widely scattered marine showers and storms will bring initial
opportunity to the coastal counties...but rain chances will
overspread the area as the day unfolds...even points well inland. It
will be slightly cooler today due to the maritime flow and clouds.
Afternoon high temperatures will be in the upper 80s to near 90

Beach and boating conditions will deteriorate into this weekend as
the far-reaching peripheral effects of Hurricane Maria tighten up
the local pressure gradient to bring about breezier conditions. More
so...large swells from Maria will cause concern for high surf and rip
current conditions much greater than normal Saturday and Sunday.
Small craft will need to exercise caution today...but advisories are
likely as the weekend begins.
