Parts of Long Island are forecast to see minor coastal flooding when the full moon causes an astronomically high tide Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

North Shore Suffolk County west of Shoreham and both shores in Nassau County are expected to see tides a half-foot above normal between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m., according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.

“Impacts should be limited to typically more vulnerable spots,” the weather service said in a coastal flood statement.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected Monday afternoon through Tuesday with temperatures in the low 80s as a slight chance of rain will continue into Wednesday.

Partly sunny skies with temps holding in the 80s are forecast for Thursday through Saturday, when there will be a slight chance of showers all weekend.

When he’s not editing, getting hassled by The Man or fielding cold calls to the newsroom, he covers crime, general interest and political news in addition to reporting longer, sometimes investigative features. He won’t be happy until everyone is as pissed off as he is about how screwed up Lawn Guyland is.
