The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington DC has
issued a coastal flood advisory, which is in effect from 1 am to

Mary's County, including St. George Island.

* Tidal departure... up to a foot above astronomical normals.

* Timing... within a couple hours of high tide early Sunday

Lookout... 3:53 am, Piney Point... 4:42 am, Coltons Point... 5:18
am.

* Impacts... water is expected to go over a portion of The
Bulkhead near The Straits Point Bridge, and also cover yards in
the St Georges creek and St Marys River areas. Minor shoreline
inundation is possible elsewhere.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

otherwise noted. Time of high total tide is
approximate to nearest hour. Total tide combines the
normal tide and departure from normal. Flood impact
