Coastal Flood Advisory Issued

The National Weather Service late today issued a coastal flood advisory which is in effect from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.

A persistent northeast flow will produce tidal departures of 1.5 to 2 feet above normal late tonight through early Thursday afternoon producing minor coastal flooding across western Long Island Sound, the advisory said.

High tides late tonight will be around a foot lower than tide levels early Thursday afternoon and based on current forecast departures minor flooding is not expected with the high tide cycle late tonight.

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

It was an emotional afternoon for two Westport Fire Department veterans as they were promoted in a ceremony at fire headquarters.

Edward Zygmant was promoted to fire marshal, a position he held in an acting capacity since last March, and Timothy Chalfant, a Westport native, was promoted to fire inspector. Zygmant has been with the Westport department for 27 years, and Chalfant is a 29-year veteran.

Fire Chief Christopher Ackley said he probably has spent more holidays with the two veterans than they had spent with their own families, which is a sign of their dedication to protecting Westport.

“They know the meaning of brotherhood,” he said. “They live it.”

Rain, Wind, Minor Coastal Flooding Expected

The National Weather Service said today rain, wind and minor coastal flooding are expected late today into Thanksgiving Day in Westport and the tri-state area.

A low pressure system off the North Carolina coast this morning will slowly track north today through tonight to off the Delmarva coast by Thanksgiving morning, an advisory said.

The rain shield ahead of the coastal storm will overspread Long Island, New York City and northeastern New Jersey this evening and then gradually work north into the lower Hudson Valley and southern Connecticut tonight.

The precipitation may start as a brief period of light freezing rain across Orange County in the lower Hudson Valley this evening but will quickly change to plain rain.
