    Tidal flooding is ongoing in the usual low-lying areas at the Shore this morning.

    According to the National Weather Service, a Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect until noon today.

    High tide occurred along the oceanfront between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. and the back bays late this morning.

    Tidal gauges indicate widespread minor and some moderate tidal flooding, according to the National Weather Service. The flooding is due to a combination of the new moon, an onshore flow, and heavy rain. 

    There are no reports of property damage as of 11:45 a.m. 

    Low-lying roadways that typically flood have standing water, and motorists should avoid. 

    The only major Shore roadway closed this morning due to flooding is Route 40 in both directions west of the Atlantic City Expressway in Egg Harbor Township, according to 511nj.org. Route 40 in the Egg Harbor Township area typically floods. 

    The National Weather Service does not expect another round of flooding later today.
