Mix of Sun & Clouds, Some Thunderstorms
Overall, it will be partly cloudy today with highs around 90. The heat index will bounce around 100 during the mid to late afternoon. Some showers and thunderstorm will form later in the afternoon and will be scattered in nature ... some could dump some heavy rain in isolated areas.

Elevated Evening Tides
The evening high tides will be elevated through the weekend due to the presence of the new moon and its position in the lunar orbit (perigee). This is causing the evening high tides to rise to the top of the marshes and tidal creeks. Last night, the tide maxed out at 9.59 feet at 10:24 pm, which is over the top of the marshes and tidal creeks spilling onto some of the roads. It could be slightly lower tonight, but still at the top over slightly over the top. Shallow coastal flooding begins around 9.3 feet. Times of potential flooding will around 10pm - 12am Sunday evening.
Be on the alert for some minor flooding along roads passing over marshes around these times.

Astro View
Globular Star Cluster in the constellation of Serpens (Messier 5) ...
This cluster is estimated to be 13 billion years old. M5 is one of the oldest Milky Way globular clusters. It's estimated to contain at least 500,000 stars. This cluster is about 24,500 light-years away. M5 is high overhead at 11 pm in middle July. I took this 30 minute exposure picture Saturday night (July 14, 2018) under a partly cloudy sky in my 'heavenly backyard' at midnight using the 11" telescope.
