Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 4:13 AM EST Jan. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until 9 PM EST this
evening...

* location... coastal areas of Cape May County in New Jersey and
Sussex County in Delaware... as well as areas along the Delaware
Bay.

* Coastal flooding... pockets of minor flooding will occur with the
upcoming high tide early this morning. Widespread minor flooding
is expected with the high tide late this afternoon into this
evening. There is a potential for localized moderate coastal
flooding late this afternoon into this evening.

* Timing... high tide on the New Jersey and Delaware oceanfront
occurs through 4:30 am this morning and again between 4:00 PM
and 5:00 PM this afternoon. High tide on the back bays and along
Delaware Bay occurs later than the high tide on the oceanfront.

* Surge... around 1.5 to 2 feet above the astronomical tide early
this morning. Around 3 to 3.5 feet above the astronomical tide
from late Monday afternoon into Monday evening.

* Waves... wave heights on the ocean waters off the coast are
forecast to build to 12 to 16 feet today. Waves on Delaware Bay
should increase to 3 to 7 feet.

* Impacts... localized roadway flooding will occur this morning.
Additional roadways are anticipated to flood from late this
afternoon into this evening. The late day flooding may be
compounded by rain. Also... the combination of very strong
onshore winds and battering waves will lead to significant beach
erosion.

* Outlook... lingering minor tidal flooding may occur again
around the high tide early on Tuesday morning.

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.
