generally be 4 to 6 feet. Wave heights on Delaware Bay will be 2
to 3 feet.

may be closed due to high water.

* Outlook... minor tidal flooding is again expected around the
times of high tide on Thursday and Friday, especially the
evening high tide. The threat of minor tidal flooding may
continue into Saturday depending upon the evolution of the
coastal low pressure system.

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.

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
southeastern Atlantic County in southern New Jersey...
central Ocean County in southern New Jersey...

* until 600 PM EDT

* at 203 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause minor flooding in the advisory area.

Additional rainfall of one to one and a half inches is expected over
the area including the barrier islands of the central New Jersey
shore. The combination of this additional rain and the high tide
coming in will cause minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
