Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 2:44 AM EDT May. 30, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 10 am this morning to
4 PM EDT this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington DC has
issued a coastal flood advisory, which is in effect from 10 am
this morning to 4 PM EDT this afternoon.

* Locations... the shores of the tidal Potomac River in Arlington,
Alexandria and Washington, DC.

* Tidal departure... 1.0 to 1.5 feet above normal.

* Timing... within a few hours of high tide. At Washington Channel,
the next high tide is at 12:29 PM. At Alexandria, the next high
tide is at 12:47 PM.

* Impacts... shoreline inundation is expected along portions of
the seawall adjacent to Ohio drive and the Hains Point loop
Road. Water is expected to approach the curb near the
intersection of King Street and strand street in Alexandria.
Minor shoreline inundation is possible elsewhere.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.



Forecast tides are referenced to mean lower low water
(mllw) and mean higher high water (mhhw) unless
otherwise noted. Time of high total tide is
approximate to nearest hour. Total tide combines the
normal tide and departure from normal. Flood impact
is based on the total tide and waves where applicable.
