The tropical storm warning for the South Jersey coast has been cancelled as Hermine continues to track far enough offshore to spare the region significant impacts from wind, rain, and storm surge, emergency management officials said Monday morning.

However, a coastal flood advisory is in effect through 5 a.m. Tuesday for Atlantic, Cape May and Ocean counties, with the potential for minor coastal flooding, rough surf, and dangerous rip currents, according to a statement issued Monday by the National Weather Service.

Atlantic County emergency officials advise anyone going to the beach to continue to exercise caution and only enter water at guarded beaches as permitted.

Motorists are reminded not to drive through flood waters and to monitor media outlets and the county web sites for updates and any road closures caused by flooding, according to a statement Monday by Linda Gilmore, a spokesperson for Atlantic County government.

(Flooding details will develop throughout the day. Check back for details.)
