Coastal Flood Advisory in effect for coastal New Jersey through early Wednesday

    The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for coastal sections of New Jersey through early Wednesday. 

    Areas of minor tidal flooding, including poor drainage areas and roadways, are likely with high tide tonight along the Atlantic coast and the Delaware and Raritan bays, according to the National Weather Service. 

    High tide along the coastline occurs this evening between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. 

    There is a small chance of additional minor tidal with the high tide cycle on Wednesday, according to the service. 

    “Minor tidal flooding often results in some road closures,” the bulletin advises. “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 your think it is. You will be putting yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged, leading to costly repairs.”
