evening to midnight EDT tonight...

* location... coastal areas of New Jersey, as well as areas along
Raritan Bay and Delaware Bay.

* Coastal flooding... widespread minor flooding is anticipated
around the time of this evening's high tide. Flood levels may
approach moderate in spots.

* Timing... high tide on the New Jersey oceanfront occurs between
700 PM and 800 PM this evening. High tide on the back bays,
along Raritan Bay and along Delaware Bay occurs later than the
high tide on the oceanfront.

* Surge... near 1.5 feet above the astronomical tide.

* Waves... wave heights on the ocean waters off the coast will be
4 to 7 feet. Wave heights on Delaware Bay will be 2 to 4 feet.

* Impacts... roadway flooding is anticipated. Some roads will be
closed due to high water.

* Outlook... minor tidal flooding is again expected around the
time of high tide on Friday morning. Minor flooding is likely
with Friday evening's high tide and some moderate flooding is
possible. A coastal Flood Warning may eventually be needed for
that tide cycle. Additional minor tidal flooding is possible on
Saturday.

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.
