... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect from 10 am this
morning to 3 PM EST this afternoon...

* locations... the tidal Delaware River down to the Commodore
Barry bridge area.

* Timing... flooding will occur for a few hours around the time of
high tide today. High tide at Philadelphia occurs between 12:00
PM and 1:00 PM.

* Coastal flood impacts... up to one foot of saltwater inundation
above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near
shorelines and tidal waterways. In Philadelphia, roadway
flooding is possible in the Navy shipyard, and along Linden
Avenue, Spring Garden street, and Washington Avenue. In
Delaware County, flooding is possible in Tinicum township. In
Gloucester and Camden counties, roadway flooding is possible
in Camden, West Deptford township, Gloucester City, and other
locations near the Delaware River and its tributaries. Minor
flooding is possible in Bristol, South Trenton, Hamilton
Township, Burlington city, Delran, and other locations near
the Delaware River and its tributaries.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory means that minor tidal flooding is
expected. Minor tidal flooding often results in some Road
closures. 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 you think it is. You will be putting
yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged, leading to
costly repairs.

Visit the advanced hydrologic prediction service at
water.Weather.Gov/ahps for additional water level and flood
impact information for your local tide gauge.


Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.

... Flood Watch remains in effect until 1 PM EST this afternoon...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northern Delaware, northeast Maryland, New Jersey,
and southeast Pennsylvania, including the Interstate 95
corridor.

* Until 1 PM EST this afternoon

* rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are expected across the
watch area, with locally higher amounts possible.

* Periods of moderate to heavy rain will occur through mid morning.
In the areas of heaviest rainfall, urban and poor-drainage
flooding is expected to occur. Sensitive streams and creeks will
also be susceptible to flooding, especially in areas where
convection enhances rainfall rates. River flooding cannot be
ruled out, particularly if widespread rainfall totals exceed 2
inches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
