...COASTAL FLOOD WARNING HAS EXPIRED...
The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a Coastal
Flood Advisory, which is in effect from 11 PM this evening to
3 AM EST Monday.
* LOCATION...Coastal Plymouth county as well as Barnstable
* TIDAL DEPARTURE...Storm surge of 1 to 2 feet.
* TIMING...The overnight high tide cycle.
* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Minor coastal flooding and splash over
are expected during the overnight high tide cycle. The typical
low lying areas will most likely see inundation as well as
locations that have received breaches in dunes and seawalls.
While this high tide will not have as large of an impact as the
last couple days...some locations are more vulnerable given the
impacts from this long duration event.
A Coastal Flood Advisory is issued for minor coastal flooding of
the most vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the
height of storm tide or wave splashover. The majority of roads
remain passable with only isolated closures. There is no
significant threat to life...and impact on property is minimal.
