Monroe Upper Keys-
502 AM EST Wed Nov 13 2019

...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR THE UPPER KEYS...

* COASTAL FLOODING...Saltwater flooding is expected across the
  Upper Keys, especially the Bayside communities of Key Largo.
  Total water levels about 2 feet above mean sea level are
  possible. This is about 1.25 feet above the normal predicted
  tide.

* TIMING...Impacts from saltwater flooding will tend to persist,
  despite the tidal cycle, with little relief at low tide.

* IMPACTS...Saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and lots
  is expected. Some storm drains will overflow, and some
  seawalls and docks will be overtopped. Boaters can expect less
  clearance under fixed bridges. Motorists should remember that
  persistent puddles are almost certain to contain a mix of
  saltwater.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

  during high tide. For the Lower Keys, the next higher high
  tide will occur this evening from about 9 pm until midnight.
  For the Middle Keys, the next high tide will occur from this
