Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 8:18 PM EDT Mar. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 7 PM Thursday to 1 am
EDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a coastal
flood advisory, which is in effect from 7:00 PM Thursday until
1:00 am 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... widespread minor flooding is
anticipated around the time of Thursday evening's high tide. Up
to 1 foot of saltwater inundation above ground level is possible
in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways. Roadway
flooding is expected. Some roads may be closed due to high
water.

* 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.
