The National Weather Service predicts tides across much of the Jersey Shore that could be three feet above an already high new moon tide on Friday and Saturday.Forecasters are predicting that a major snowstorm could affect millions across the East Coast at the end of the week.With the track and temperatures still uncertain, it remains unclear what impact the storm will have in Ocean City.But this much is clear: Full-moon tides will coincide with the arrival of the storm. If its anticipated 30- to 40-mph northeast coastal winds and heavy precipitation materialize, Ocean City can expect tidal flooding.High tides (at the Ninth Street Bridge on Ocean City’s flood-prone bay side) will be at the following times:6:42 a.m. Friday (4.3 feet mean low water)7:09 p.m. Friday (3.6 feet)7:28 a.m. Saturday (4.3 feet)7:54 p.m. Saturday (3.7 feet)Residents of low-lying streets may want to be prepared to move vehicles to higher ground. The astronomical tide height predictions for this weekend are similar to the new moon tide that flooded Ocean City streets two weeks ago. These predictions don’t take into account any of the wind or rain that can increase the flooding. (See our chart of historic Ocean City flood levels.)The coastal storm also could erode Ocean City’s newly replenished beaches at the north and south ends, though a touch-up project is still scheduled to take place at the south end starting later this winter. (See “Ocean City’s South End Beaches to Get a Do-Over.”)Forecasters are tracking a major low-pressure system expected to move across the southern United States this week. The storm is expected to move over the Atlantic Ocean and track up the coast, moving past Ocean City from late Friday into Saturday.Some inland areas on the East Coast could see as much as two feet of snow, but the potential for warmer coastal temperatures make the prediction of snow for Ocean City much more difficult.“Due to the inherent uncertainty with systems this far out (currently this system is still out over the Pacific), we only produce snow amount forecasts for events within 72 hours (3 days). Thus, we probably won’t be producing a snow amount forecast for this event until at least Wednesday afternoon,” the National Weather Service Mt. Holly Office reported on Monday.A separate storm could bring less than an inch of new snow to Ocean City on Wednesday evening.See Monday’s National Weather Service briefing on the weekend event below.Download (PDF, 424KB)
Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to Neil Young. He regularly impersonates the guitar legend, even once going so far as to perform like Neil Young with Crosby, Stills & Nash. While Fallon has performed with Neil Young, as Neil Young, before, the two personalities got together on late night’s episode and reprised their doppelganger duet.This time, the two made up a new song called “Two Neil Youngs On A Stump,” where the duo sat on a rotating tree stump and sang their new song. Young was on the show to promote his recently-released live album EARTH.Watch the sketch from last night’s episode, below.

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) – Kyle Mayers’ maiden List A hundred proved the difference as Barbados Pride halted Leeward Islands Hurricanes’ unbeaten streak by handing the Group A hosts a 32-run defeat here Wednesday night.Opting to bat first at Warner Park, Pride finished on 255 all out from their 50 overs, with the left-hander stroking 113 off 110 balls.In his first campaign in several years for his native franchise, following several seasons with Windward Islands Volcanoes, Mayers hit nine fours and eight sixes in an enterprising knock.Wicketkeeper Tevyn Walcott chipped in with 39 and captain Jonathan Carter got 34, in an otherwise patchy batting display by Pride.Fast bowler Sheno Berridge claimed four for 38 while left-arm spinner Jason Campbell picked up three for 30, giving Hurricanes the early advantage in the day/night fixture before also ensuring a strong finish to the innings.In reply, Devon Thomas sustained his great form with exactly 50 off 85 deliveries but other than Terrance Ward’s 41 at number seven and opener Kieran Powell’s 30, Hurricanes failed to mount a coherent run chase and were dismissed for 223 in the 48th over.They were undermined by left-arm spinner Joshua Bishop (3-31) and off-spinner Ashley Nurse (3-46) who finished with three wickets apiece.Hurricanes were still in the hunt at 179 for five but then lost their last five wickets for 44 runs off the last 61 balls of the innings.It was Mayers, however, who took the spotlight inside the first 50 overs of the game, producing a high-quality knock, to twice pull Pride out of trouble.They were first slumping at 36 for three in the 12th over following two strikes from Berridge, before Mayers put on 44 for the fourth wicket with Carter, whose 47-ball knock contained three fours and a six.When Campbell bowled Carter and then trapped Roshon Primus lbw without scoring in the 25th over to leave Pride tottering on 80 for five, Mayers paired with Walcott in a 117-run stand to once again rescue the innings.The 27-year-old was measured in his first fifty, requiring 69 balls for the landmark but raised the tempo to reach three figures off only a further 37 deliveries, by smashing left-arm spinner Yannick Leonard for a straight six in the 45th over.He was eighth out in the next over, caught on the ropes at backward point off Berridge looking for quick runs.Left-hander Powell then struck five fours in a 45-ball knock as Hurricanes reached 50 for one in the 12th over. When Powell smashed a wide ball from Nurse to Leniko Boucher at cover point, Hurricanes lost a cluster of wickets to be 112 for five in the 26th over.Thomas, who punched four fours and Ward, whose 46-ball knock also contained four boundaries, added 67 for the sixth wicket; but once the stand was broken, the last five wickets went down in another cluster. Left-hander Kyle Mayers scored his maiden domestic 50-over hundred. Caption:
