PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Today is looking cloudy, chilly and breezy for the Eagles game, and the lack of sunshine will make it feel even colder. Make sure you dress for wind chills in the 30s if you are going to the game — layers will be key.
The latest forecast looks mainly dry for Philadelphia this afternoon — good news for those of you heading to the Eagles game.
We can’t completely rule out a sprinkle or two in the city, but the best chance for rain looks to be south and east, closer to the coast.
The persistent northeast flow will allow water to pile up along the coast, leading to coastal flooding today and tomorrow during times of high tide.
A Coastal Flood Warning is in effect for the Jersey Shore and the Delaware beaches this morning through Monday afternoon for the threat of moderate tidal flooding and significant beach erosion.

This flooding event will be similar, if not a little bit worse, than the coastal flooding we saw on Oct. 11, about a month ago.
So if you saw flooding then, you will likely see flooding again during high tide today and tomorrow.
Once water levels reach moderate flood stage, this is what you can expect.
