Mother’s Day weekend East Coast soaker brings threat of high surf, rip currents, coastal flooding

Published

on

Low pressure will spread a widespread area of soaking rain across the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic through Saturday, then move off the East Coast by Mother’s Day and create high surf, rip currents and coastal flooding along the Eastern Seaboard into next week.

This storm system will first trigger a threat of severe thunderstorms in parts of the Southeast before becoming an East Coast soaker into the start of the weekend.

Periods of rain and a few thunderstorms drenched the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic on Friday. The soaking rain will linger in the mid-Atlantic states for much of Saturday.

The heaviest rainfall along the Interstate 95 corridor from New York City to Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington is expected to fall Friday night and Saturday morning.

Most areas will dry out overnight Saturday as the low-pressure system slides offshore, yielding a dry Mother’s Day for much of the eastern U.S. However, stubborn clouds and light showers could linger along portions of the immediate coast from southern New England to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

An inch or two of rain is expected across much of the Ohio Valley and mid-Atlantic, though it will be spread out over many hours, which will limit the flooding risk in these regions. Locally higher amounts over 2 inches are possible in some areas.

The greatest risk of localized flash flooding will be in southern Ohio, western and central Pennsylvania and West Virginia, where the soils are most saturated. These areas have picked up as much as 200 percent of their average rainfall over the past 30 days.

The National Weather Service has issued Flood Watches from parts of Ohio and eastern Kentucky into West Virginia, western and central Pennsylvania, Maryland and northern Virginia.

In addition, temperatures will be cooler than average due to the persistent clouds and showers. Gusty winds will make it feel like it’s only in the 30s and 40s from Boston to Philadelphia through Sunday.

High surf, rip current, coastal flood threats

The low-pressure system will be situated off the coast of North Carolina by Mother’s Day, and it won’t move much through the middle of next week.

That’s because the jet stream will be parked well to the north, so there won’t be any disturbances in the atmosphere to nudge this system away from the East Coast.

A high-pressure system will also be located over Maine and Canada’s Quebec province. The clockwise winds around this high will combine with the counterclockwise winds around the low-pressure system near the Eastern Seaboard, generating persistent northeasterly onshore winds.

This will be an exceptionally long-duration event, with coastal areas getting pounded by 40- to 50-mph wind gusts almost nonstop from Saturday through Wednesday.

Minor to moderate coastal flooding will become a concern at times of high tide beginning Sunday morning from the Jersey Shore to North Carolina as these strong northeasterly winds blow the water toward the coastline. Large, persistent waves will also cause severe beach erosion.

Showers from the low-pressure system might occasionally move onshore between southern New England and Florida through the middle of next week, but they should not result in a complete washout at the beaches on any particular day. Later in the week, the low might backtrack toward the southeastern U.S. and increase the chance of rain along portions of the Southeast coast.

Because of the threat of rip currents, you’re advised to use caution if you have beach plans on Mother’s Day or any day next week. According to the National Weather Service, an average of 60 people are killed by rip currents each year in the U.S. So far this year, rip currents have already been blamed for 14 deaths.

Many beaches use color-coded flags to warn visitors of the day’s rip current risk.

If you see a green flag, strong rip currents are not expected that day, so you should be able to swim safely. However, beware of the yellow and red flags. A yellow flag means there is a moderate risk of strong rip currents, while a red flag indicates a high risk. Take extreme caution when entering the water if a yellow or red flag is posted on the beach.

You can find NOAA’s official rip current forecasts at this link.

Subtropical development not ruled out

It’s not out of the question that this low-pressure system meandering off the East Coast could briefly become a subtropical depression or subtropical storm next week. A storm designated as subtropical means it has characteristics of both a tropical and a non-tropical cyclone (a low-pressure system that you would typically find over land in the U.S.).

The National Hurricane Center issues routine advisories for subtropical depressions and subtropical storms, just as it does for tropical depressions, tropical storms and hurricanes.

The odds of this happening are low, but in the outside chance it develops into a subtropical storm with winds of at least 40 mph, it would earn the name “Alex,” the first on the naming list for the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season.

Although hurricane season doesn’t officially begin until June 1, the past seven seasons have all spawned at least one named storm before that date.

Regardless of what this system is called (or not called), the impacts along the East Coast will be the same as we outlined above.

Actress Anne Heche Suffers Severe Burns After Crashing Car Into Los Angeles Home

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.
