* coastal flooding/rip currents... dangerous rip currents are
expected on beaches. Coastal flooding... including street
flooding... is possible around periods of high tide.

* Timing... through this evening. Coastal flooding risk is highest
near high tides... and rip currents are most likely between high
and low tides. The next high tides are between 630 and 7 PM this
evening and around 7 am Saturday morning. The next low tide is
around 1230 PM EDT today.

* Impacts... strong rip currents at local beaches are possible.
Dangerous swimming conditions will continue. Flooding possible
around high tide in sensitive locations. Street flooding also
in poorly drained and low-lying areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
