A Coastal Flood Advisory will go into effect for the entire New Jersey coastline between 7 a.m. Sunday and 1 a.m. Monday, according to a National Weather Service bulletin.

The bulletin advises that minor tidal flooding is likely during the Sunday evening high tide cycle.

Tides will be running above normal due a strengthening onshore flow as a low pressure system moves offshore of the Delmarva and New Jersey, according to the National Weather Service.

High tide will occur between 8 and 9 p.m. along oceanfront and up to two hours later in tidal waterways and back bays.

Localized roadway flooding is likely, causing some road closures. Motorists should not drive through flooded areas.
