Beaches Will Take A Beating Today, Tonight

Strong, persistent, onshore winds will drive large waves up against the shores today. Combined with tides running higher than normal with the recent new moon, this will yield beach erosion and pockets of coastal flooding at the time of high tide this afternoon and again tonight.

Note the fast increase in wave heights in Massachusetts Bay this morning and the tide gauge showing forecast tide heights to near minor flood stage (doesn’t include waves).
