Coastal Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:29 PM EDT on October 31, 2014

...Coastal Flood Watch remains in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday morning...

* location...the eastern Massachusetts coast including the north facing portions of Cape Cod and Nantucket.

* Coastal flooding...minor with isolated pockets of moderate coastal flooding are possible. The highest risk area appears to be in the Scituate and Hull areas. Beach erosion is also expected.

* Timing...during the Saturday evening and early Sunday morning high tide cycles. While both high tide cycles are a concern...the latest data suggests the Saturday evening high tide will pose the greatest risk.

* Impacts...some of the most vulnerable shore roads may be flooded and impassable for a time during the times of high tide. Basement flooding is also possible along with beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Watch means that the potential exists for moderate or major coastal flooding. Moderate coastal flooding produces flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the height of storm tide and/or wave action.

All tide heights are relative to mean lower low water. Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
