... NEW MOON AND EASTERLY SWELLS CONTINUE TO CAUSE HIGHER TIDES... ... ISOLATED MINOR TIDAL FLOODING POSSIBLE TUESDAY...

A STRONG STORM SYSTEM WELL OUT IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN CONTINUES TO GENERATE LONG PERIOD EASTERLY SWELLS. THESE SWELLS IN COMBINATION WITH THE HIGHER THAN NORMAL ASTRONOMICAL TIDES, MAY PRODUCE ISOLATED AREAS OF MINOR TIDAL FLOODING TUESDAY MORNING INTO TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

TIDAL GAGES ALONG THE NEW JERSEY COAST MONDAY AFTERNOON WERE RUNNING ABOUT ONE HALF TO ONE FOOT ABOVE NORMAL, WHILE GAGES ALONG THE DELAWARE RIVER AND BAY WERE BETWEEN ONE AND ONE AND A HALF FEET ABOVE NORMAL. THESE HIGHER THAN NORMAL LEVELS ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST THROUGH THE HIGH TIDES TUESDAY. THE MORNING OR EARLY AFTERNOON HIGH TIDES ARE CURRENTLY THE HIGHER OF THE TWO TIDES IN THE DAILY CYCLE.

THESE HIGH TIDES WILL OCCUR IN THE RARITAN BAY AT SOUTH AMBOY AT 7:01 AM TUESDAY MORNING. ALONG THE NEW JERSEY SHORE, THE HIGH TIDES WILL OCCUR AT SANDY HOOK, ATLANTIC CITY AND CAPE MAY BETWEEN 6:43 AM AND 7:05 AM TUESDAY MORNING. THE ADJACENT BACK BAYS TEND TO HAVE THEIR HIGH TIDES ONE TO TWO HOURS LATER. IN THE DELAWARE BAY AND RIVER, THE HIGH TIDES WILL OCCUR AT LEWES, DELAWARE AT 7:57 AM, AT REEDY POINT, DELAWARE AT 10:34 AM, AND AT THE PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA PIER AT 1:08 PM.

ONLY A FEW AREAS MAY EXPERIENCE MINOR TIDAL FLOODING, AS CONDITIONS ARE MARGINAL, AT BEST, FOR IT TO OCCUR. IF YOUR AREA NORMALLY EXPERIENCES ANY FLOODING AT THE HIGHEST TIDES OF THE YEAR, YOU SHOULD CONSIDER IF ANY ACTION IS NEEDED ON YOUR PART.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR TIDAL GAGES THROUGH THE NEW MOON CYCLE, AND ISSUE FURTHER STATEMENTS IF NECESSARY.
