Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 5:01 PM EDT Mar. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 1 am EDT
Friday...

* locations... coastal areas of Ocean County, Atlantic County, and
southeastern Burlington County.

* Timing... high tide on the New Jersey oceanfront occurs between
8:30 and 9:30 PM Thursday. High tide on the back bays occurs
later than the high tide on the oceanfront.

* Coastal flood impacts... up to one foot of saltwater inundation
above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near
shorelines and tidal waterways. Minor roadway flooding is
possible on the barrier islands and along the back bays of
Ocean County, and in tidal areas of southeastern Burlington
County. In Atlantic County, minor roadway flooding is possible
in Atlantic City, Absecon, Ventnor, and nearby communities.

* Waves... wave heights on the ocean waters off the coast are
forecast to be 5 to 7 feet.

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.

Visit the advanced hydrologic prediction service at
water.Weather.Gov/ahps for additional water level and flood
impact information for your local tide gauge.


Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
