Coastal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 3:31 PM EDT on May 27, 2018


... Coastal flood advisory in effect until midnight EDT tonight...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a coastal
flood advisory, which is in effect until midnight EDT tonight.

* Locations... coastal areas of Middlesex County, Monmouth County
and Ocean County.

* Coastal flooding... minor flooding at high tide this evening.

* Timing... high tide on the New Jersey oceanfront occurs between
6:30 PM and 7:30 PM this evening. High tide on the back bays
and on Raritan Bay occurs later than the high tide on the
oceanfront.

* Surge... around 1.0 to 1.5 feet above the astronomical tide.

* Waves... wave heights on the ocean waters off Delaware are
forecast to be 4 to 5 feet.

* Impacts... localized roadway flooding is expected. Some roads

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory means that minor tidal flooding is
expected. Minor tidal flooding often results in some Road
closures. Usually... the most vulnerable roadways will flood.

Do not leave your vehicle at a location that is prone to tidal
flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flood waters. The
water may be deeper than you think it is. You will be putting
yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged... leading to
costly repairs.

water.Weather.Gov/ahps for additional water level and flood
impact information for your local tide gauge.
