Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 2:13 PM EDT May. 29, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 11 PM this evening to
2 am EDT Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington DC has
issued a coastal flood advisory, which is in effect from 11 PM
this evening to 2 am EDT Tuesday.

* Locations... Washington DC Waterfront.

* Tidal departure... from 1 to 1.25 feet above normal.

* Timing... around the time of high tide tonight. The next high
tide at Washington Channel will be at 12:17 am.

* Impacts... shoreline inundation is expected along portions of the
seawall adjacent to Ohio drive and the Hains Point loop Road.
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.
