NWS: Breezy, chance for coastal flooding on Peninsula Saturday

Winds are expected to slow down a bit on the Virginia Peninsula Saturday, but conditions will be breezy, and there is a chance for coastal flooding.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high temperature about 49 degrees and a low about 38.

Winds are expected to be highest in areas along the coast. The forecast out of the Langley Air Force Base predicts winds out of the northwest, 25 to 28 mph, with gusts as high as 40 mph. Overnight, winds will be out of the north, with speeds 22 to 25 mph and gusts as high as 36 mph.

A Coastal Flood Advisory will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday for the cities of Hampton and Poquoson, and Glocuester, Mathews and York counties.

“Shallow flooding is expected in the most vulnerable locations near the waterfront and shoreline resulting in a low threat of property damage,” the advisory states. “Expect around one foot of inundation in low-lying, vulnerable areas. Some roads and low-lying property including parking lots, parks and lawns near the waterfront will experience shallow flooding.”
