... Coastal Flood Advisory in effect from 7 PM to 11 PM EST this evening...
... Coastal Flood Watch in effect Tuesday morning...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a coastal Flood Advisory...
which is in effect from 7 PM to 11 PM EST this evening. A coastal Flood Watch
has also been issued. This coastal Flood Watch is in effect Tuesday morning.

feet Tuesday morning.

* Timing... within a few hours of high tide this evening and again
Tuesday morning.

* Coastal flood impacts... pockets of minor flooding this evening.
Widespread minor flooding Tuesday morning with pockets of
moderate flooding possible.

* Shoreline impacts... significant beach erosion likely on east
facing shorelines.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Advisory is issued for minor coastal flooding of the most
vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the height of storm tide or wave
splashover. The majority of roads remain passable with only isolated closures.
There is no significant threat to life... and impact on property is minimal.

A coastal Flood Watch means that potential exists for moderate or major coastal
flooding. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread flooding of vulnerable
shore roads and/or basements due to the height of the storm tide and/or wave
action. Numerous Road closures are needed. Lives may be at risk for people who
put themselves in harms way. Isolated structural damage may be possible.



Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
