Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 4:48 PM EDT Jul. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 8 PM to 10 PM EDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a coastal
flood advisory... which is in effect from 8 PM to 10 PM EDT this
evening.

* Location... low lying areas bordering the lower Cape Fear River from
downtown Wilmington NC and southward.

* Minor coastal flooding... the tide gauge in downtown Wilmington is
forecast to reach just shy of 5.7 ft MLLW. Minor flooding begins at
5.5 ft MLLW.

* Timing... water levels will be conducive to shallow flooding between
8 PM and 10 PM this evening.

* Impacts... several inches of water will cover the lowest portions of
U.S.S. North Carolina Road and battleship Rd. Water will spread out
of the storm drains and onto Water Street in downtown Wilmington. A
few spots along River Road south of downtown Wilmington may see
water partially cover the roadway.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that increasing astronomical tides
due to the approaching new moon will combine with the Cape Fear River
waters to produce flooding of low lying areas along the river.
