Storm Analysis

As of 01/24/2016 22:00 EST, water levels remain elevated from the mid-Atlantic to New England, though residual values are falling. Overall, water levels still range between 1 and 2 feet above normal tide levels from Maryland to Maine. Winds have decreased significantly and barometric pressure continues to rise as the storm system continues to pull away.

No further QuickLooks will be posted for this storm unless oceanographic conditions warrant.

Water Level and Meteorological plots available below are updated automatically.  A line denoting Mean Higher High Water (MHHW) is displayed to provide an approximate indication of when flooding inundation may occur.

For additional data, please see the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products & Services website. For more information or archived products and reports, please see the Storm QuickLook Homepage.
