Coastal Flood Advisory Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. today issued a coastal flood advisory for Westport and area which is in effect from 9 p.m. today to 3 a.m.
Sunday.

A powerful storm system will result in tidal departures of 2 1/2 to 3 feet tonight, the advisory said.

This in combination with elevated astronomical tides will result in minor coastal flooding near the times of high tide tonight along western Long Island Sound. High tide in Westport is 1:11 a.m. Sunday.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
