Coastal Flood Warning until 02:00AM Tuesday

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Coastal Flood Warning, which is in effect until 2:00 AM Tuesday.

* LOCATIONS...Coastal areas of the New Jersey counties of Monmouth and Ocean.

* TIMING...High tide on the New Jersey oceanfront occurs between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM this evening. High tide on the back bays and along Raritan Bay occurs later than the high tide on the oceanfront.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...One to two feet of saltwater inundation above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways. At this level, widespread flooding of roadways is expected with many roads becoming impassable. Lives may be at risk when people put themselves in harm's way. Some damage to vulnerable structures may begin to occur.


* SURF ZONE IMPACTS...Large breaking waves will be dangerous to anyone who enters the surf. Very strong rip currents will be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

* WAVES...Wave heights on the ocean waters off the coast are forecast to be around 10 to 12 feet.



This Coastal Flood Warning means that moderate tidal flooding is occurring or imminent. Be prepared for rising water levels and take appropriate action to protect life and property. Follow the recommendations of local emergency management officials. 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 for additional water level and flood impact information for your local tide gauge. A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and dangerous swimming conditions. Do not enter the surf.
