well. in the ruling it out but encouraging trend today with the track of joaquin. lets talk about what is happening right now. this is an on shore win event, persistent wind battering coast of new jersey and delaware. you can see how far up on the beach those waves are there at boardwalk plaza and rehoboth beach. 60 degrees there. we have had reports of the coastal flooding up and down new jersey shore points as well. this is not cause by heavy rain. they have haven't had that much rain. just band of light to moderate rain. the northeast wind is buying water up along the coast. barrier island you get that what the tore flow in the channel. you get back bay flood ago this flood out in the treats. any area that is prone to flooding and a lot of areas certainly are, you will be seeing it over next few days. if you are not seeing it now we have high tides around 11:00 o'clock tonight. high tied around 11:00 tomorrow morning as well. you will see it then. we do still have rain pushing back in. rain is tart to go get heavier, so the wind certainly will be an issue as well. wind over 30 miles an hour gusting overnight tonight. they will get worse tomorrow afternoon.
take a look at tomorrow evening at around 7:00 o'clock we have win gusts to 45 miles an hour in wildwood. 41 miles april hour wind in millville and this just keeps coming this northeast flow right through the day saturday. then by sunday it may tart to die off just a little bit. but because of this persistent, nor'easterly wind with gusts to 50 miles an hour possible in the only coastal flood watches and warnings posted but we have a high wind watch for all of our shore communities and in the delaware beaches as well. warning of gusts to 50 plus miles per hour. so, and wind advisory moving further inland with 40 to 50. take a look at is what happening as we look the at the general set up. stalled frontal boundary pulling in tropical moisture cause ago this strong pressure gradient and gave, just really keeping that northeast wind in place right through tonight and tomorrow ande rain just continues to move in along that same boundary. this is not related to joaquin but notice there will be a connection here as we get into saturday with joaquin and moisture streaming from joaquin into portions of the carolinas. we have a low over carolinas drawing that moisture in.
part of this is helping to pin opinion wheel joaquin further out to sea. this is our in house mod that he will does keep that track further north and east but portions of the carolinas, will be deaf taitingly impacted if this flooding were to occur. this is a forecast right now of over 10 inches of rain in spots over south carolina and into north carolina as well. that is where bull a's eye of heavy rain will be from both events heading through the the weekend both the moisture associated with joaquin even though storm stays off shore and moisture from the event that we're dealing with another myth. lets look at joaquin. this is the official national hurricane center track. they mentioned in their last discussion further eastward adjustment is still likely. most tracks take it out to sea. there are a few that try to recurve that storm toward mid-atlantic. cannot be completely ruled out. i think that is very much less likely then the out to seee track but we have to see what happens with the storm tonight and into the day tomorrow as well. now always i will update you follow me on twitter, i'm posting in the middle of the night when these new models
come out. this is something we have to keep a close eye at all hours of the day. rain and wind from the coastal system continues through the start of the weekend. sunday, machine forecast, of course depending on what joaquin does. we are optimistic it will stay off shore and that means improvement, as we head in the start of next week. >> kate, thanks very much. >> time for a short break. >> we will be right back.
