...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 5 AM TO 11 AM EST
MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Coastal
Flood Advisory, which is in effect from 5:00 AM until 11:00 AM
Monday.

* LOCATIONS...Coastal areas of the New Jersey counties of
  Atlantic and Cape May, and the Delaware counties of Sussex and
  Kent.

* TIMING...High tide on the New Jersey and Delaware oceanfront
  occurs between 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM on Monday. High tide on the
  back bays and on Delaware Bay occurs later than the high tide
  on the oceanfront.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Up to one foot of saltwater inundation
  above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near
  shorelines and tidal waterways. Minor roadway flooding is
  possible.

* WAVES...Wave heights on the ocean waters off the coast are
  forecast to be 3 to 5 feet.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Advisory means that minor tidal flooding is
expected. Minor tidal flooding often results in some road
closures. Usually, the most vulnerable roadways will flood.

Do not leave your vehicle at a location that is prone to tidal
flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flood waters. The
water may be deeper than you think it is. You will be putting
yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged, leading to
costly repairs.

Visit the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service at
water.weather.gov/ahps for additional water level and flood impact
information for your local tide gauge.
