Coastal residents can expect some standing water on flood-prone roads and possible road closings Tuesday evening as a result of tidal flooding.
Coastal flood advisories have been issued along the New Jersey coast and also for Delaware Bay from 6 p.m. through midnight Tuesday for widespread minor tidal flooding.
Stiff easterly winds will blow off the ocean and combine with an approaching new moon to generate flooding during the evening high tide Tuesday and possibly again Wednesday. The Tuesday evening high tide is expected to be the more problematic.
High tides occur between 7 and 10 p.m. during the next few evenings, first along the ocean and then in the back bays and on Delaware Bay.
More than an inch of rain may fall through Tuesday, with easterly winds gusting at more than 30 mph along the shore.
While winds will diminish Wednesday, the astronomical high tides associated with the new moon could cause some lingering tidal flooding in the evening.
