The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Warning for Avalon.  The Warning is in effect as a winter storm approaches that will bring some rain to the Jersey Shore, but snow far north and west of our area.  The Coastal Flood Warning is in effect from Monday, February 12th at 8:00am through Wednesday, February 14th, at 3:00am.

Minor tidal flooding is expected at time of high tide Monday through Tuesday night.  As this large storm leaves the mid-Atlantic region, moderate tidal flooding is possible at time of high tide Tuesday night.  Monday’s high tides will occur at 9:38am and 10:07pm; Tuesday’s high tides will occur at 10:27am and 10:58am; and Wednesday’s high tides will occur at 11:19am and again at 11:53pm.

Never drive on any street that has tidal flooding as this puts you and your vehicle at risk.  Avalon has produced a flood risk map the shows where tidal flooding may occur during minor and moderate tidal flooding events.

Rain is expected in our area Monday night after sunset through lunchtime on Tuesday.
