The coastal flood warning issued by the National Weather Service has been extended, and will now be in effect until 6 p.m. tomorrow (Sunday, October 4).

Moderate tidal flooding is expected to continue at each tide cycle through Sunday afternoon. Moderate to locally major tidal flooding is possible for back bay areas due to flooding that has not drained from previous cycles.

The next two high tide cycles will be tonight (early Sunday, technically) at 1:33 a.m. and tomorrow at 1:59 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Minor coastal flooding is a possibility on Monday at high tide.

The region is not expected to be impacted in any substantial way by the path of Hurricane Joaquin, which is now pushing safely to the east.
