Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Warning, Coastal Flood Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 10:27 AM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Coastal Flood Advisory now in effect until 3 PM EDT this
afternoon...
... High rip current risk now in effect through late tonight...
... Coastal Flood Warning in effect from 6 PM this evening to 1 am
EDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a coastal
Flood Warning... which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 1 am
EDT Friday.

* Location... the central and southern New Jersey shore and
Delaware beaches.

* Coastal flooding... minor coastal flooding was occuring this
morning along the central and southern New Jersey coasts and the
Delaware coast. Tidal inundation flooding will occur again
tonight and probably be half a foot to a foot deeper than what
occurred this morning. This has prompted the upgrade of this
evenings advisory to a warning for moderate coastal flooding
with this evenings high tide cycle. Easterly winds will whip
waves of 5 to 9 feet onto the shore as well.

* Risk of rip currents... there is a high risk of dangerous rip
currents through tonight.

* Timing... the oceanfront coastal flooding is expected with the
high tides which between 7 and 9 am and 7 and 9 PM. High tide
on the Bay Side may occur up to 3 hours later. The high risk
of rip currents will continue through this evening.

* Impacts... roadway flooding is expected near both high tides.

* Surge... tides will be around 2 to 2.5 feet above astronomical
tides. Heavy rain at the time of high tides could exacerbate
coastal flooding... leading to total water levels even higher.

* Waves... 5 to 9 feet.

* Outlook... at least minor tidal inundation flooding is
anticipated with the Friday morning high tide cycle... and
possibly again Friday evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. A high risk of rip currents
implies that wind and/or wave conditions will support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents will
be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

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.
