Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, High Surf Advisory
Issued: 4:50 AM EST Nov. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 2 PM EST this
afternoon...
... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 PM EST this
evening...

* locations... coastal Pender and coastal New Hanover.

* Timing... for the high surf advisory, until 6 PM EST this
evening. For the coastal flood advisory, until 2 PM EST this
afternoon.

* Coastal flood impacts... minor street flooding occurs on the
sound-side of Carolina Beach, along canal drive from starfish
Lane northward. Water gets into yards along the sound, but the
street flooding is mainly the result of salt water backing up
through the storm drains. Heavy rain at the time of high tide
exacerbates this problem.

* Surf zone impacts... large breaking waves of 8-12 feet as well as
extremely strong longshore currents will make it dangerous for
anyone who ventures out in the surf. Powerful water run-up can
clip beachgoers off their feet into the cold surf. High surf
combined with minor coastal flooding will result in minor beach
erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.


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