The potential exists for significant coastal flooding/beach erosion over several high tide cycles late this week, particularly along the eastern MA coast. While this is far from a certainty given the potential event is 4 to 5 days in the future, there are several ingredients potentially in place coupled with high astronomical tides that this will need to be watched closely. Onshore winds possibly as high as 60 mph, building swell and high surf. If there’s heavy rain in addition, could also be dealing with poor-drainage inland flooding during high-tides as well.
