...COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE...

Coastal flooding associated with king tides will continue to be a
possibility for the next couple of days. The greatest potential
for coastal flooding impacts will be during the mid to late
afternoon hours through Monday, when the highest tides are
expected. Visit tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov for more specific
information about forecast astronomical tides and water levels in
your area.

An east swell generated by Tropical Cyclone Fernanda is here,
bringing above normal surf to along east facing shores. This swell
is expected to persist through the weekend. This will likely
cause greater wave run- up along some exposed windward coastlines,
especially during high tide.

Impacts of the king tides may include flooding of beaches that
are normally dry, salt water inundation of typically vulnerable
low-lying roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal
infrastructure. The potential threat for coastal flooding will
eventually be reduced early next week as the peak daily tides
diminish.
