DISCLAIMER: Not a real weather forecast.
If you're planning a trip to the beach this weekend, be sure to check out our three day weekend weather forecast. In addition to the rain and thunderstorms we predict this weekend, we are also predicting that a number of beaches and waterways are closed and some areas are closed for the duration of your trip. Check out the weather forecast for your location below.
We are also predicting an extremely high amount of sand and sandstorm debris. These debris are very large and can cause damage to vehicles and structures. If you have any concerns about your vehicle, check with all of the authorities for any necessary repairs or repairs on your car. You may want to consider bringing extra cash, food and water to keep things going until you are out of the storm or until you can get it fixed or replaced with a safe vehicle. If the damage is too severe to repair, there will be no way you can use the beach and there will be limited beach access.
If you are planning on using a vehicle to reach your destination, you may want to consider bringing a vehicle to get around the island. A number of islands and some of the smaller areas of the mainland have designated areas for people to park their vehicles. If you don't know how to get to the designated area, please call a toll free number and ask them to let you know which designated area you're interested in, but please understand that the designated areas can get busy and that it may be difficult to get to the designated area and park.
If you plan to use an emergency vehicle to reach any of the islands, please call the nearest county police station or emergency management center and let the operator know if they can assist you with finding your emergency vehicle. If the emergency vehicle is not available, you may have to call the local authorities or the U.S. Coast Guard to help.
