Coastal Hazard Message
National Weather Service Gray ME
1021 PM EDT Mon Apr 16 2018

...MINOR COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE TONIGHT...

.High tide occurring just after midnight tonight will likely see
a storm surge of around 1.5 feet on top of high waters levels.
That will bring total waters levels to at or just below flood
stage. Minor flooding is possible and beach erosion and splash
over is likely given the large, building near shore waves.
