Team Norfolk Update - Inclement Weather - 4-29-2020

Posted on April 29, 2020 at 12:31 PM by Jim Redick

Team –

Just a brief message to ensure you are informed about the impending inclement weather.

A Flood Watch will be in effect from April 30 at 10am until May 1 at 12am.

The Hourly Graph indicates a high likelihood of rainfall throughout Thursday morning and into the night hours.  During this time wind gusts will be elevated to around 30-35mph.  Also attached for your review is the 48-HourPrecipitation graphic showing the potential for 1.5” to 2” of rainfall as well as the Day 2 Forecast valid for Thursday April 30 through Friday, May 1.

While there may be some nuisance flooding from rainfall, coastal flooding is not anticipated per the Sewell’s Point Tide Chart.

Bottom line: for those who will be out and about Thursday in the performance of their missions, the conditions will be very wet and pretty windy.  Please plan accordingly.



Jim Redick, Director
Norfolk EOC
