NOTTINGHAM, MD – The National Weather Service has
issued a Coastal Flood Advisory, which will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
Due to persistent east-northeast winds, water levels will remain elevated over the next few days along the Chesapeake Bay and tidal Potomac.
Tides are expected to be one to one and a half feet above normal.
Flooding is expected at the end of Thames Street in Baltimore. Water also is expected to cover the promenade at the dragon boat dock in the Inner Harbor.
Minor flooding is also expected in the Bowleys Quarters area, and minor shoreline inundation up to one foot above ground is possible elsewhere.
A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
