What about the Sound? The tidal estuaries up here are swelling a bit... nothing out of the ordinary, though.

 

It really needs to be farther north for it to affect the LIS, plus remember it is pumping up all ready west/northwest moving waves.

 

The east coast, NY/NJ/PA dodged a bullet with this one for sure.
