FLOOD RISK AT HIGH TIDE
COASTAL FLOOD RISK
Coastal flood risk will be created due to strong southerly winds over the coastal regions Sunday and this creates a coastal flood risk at high tide Sunday morning. Northern areas of the New Jersey Shore as well as the areas around New York City, the south shore of Long Island and Coastal Connecticut are all at a minor coastal flood risk. A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for those areas. The flood risk is for tides running 2 feet above normal. This would mean that there could be some minor coastal flooding at the time of high tide. Fortunately this the only tide cycle to worry about. Small Craft Advisories are in effect for the coastal waters.
