South Washington Coast

 Coastal Flood Advisory  Statement as of 9:05 PM PST on December 21, 2014


... Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect from 10 am to 4 PM
PST Monday for the north Oregon and central Oregon coast... and the
South Washington coast...

A coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect from 10 am to 4 PM PST
Monday.

* Tides: the observed high tide late Sunday morning was observed
around 11 ft at Toke Point and South Beach... and 11.5 ft at
Astoria with tidal anomalies of around 1.5 ft. The high tide
Monday afternoon around 1 PM is expected to be of a similar
magnitude.

* River flows: flow on the coastal rivers remains high as a result
of recent abundant rainfall. While flows will be decreasing in
the next 24 hours... they will remain high enough for the midday
high tide tomorrow to contribute to minor tidal overflow.

* Timing: minor tidal overflow can again be expected during the
high tide around 1 PM Monday with impacts likely occurring
between 10 am and 4 PM.

* Impacts: affected locations will include low lying areas near
bays and sloughs... Highway 101... and the lower reaches of
coastal rivers. Low lying areas near the city of Astoria...
near Highway 101 in Tillamook... and Highway 126 east of
Florence were impacted today and may also see minor tidal
overflow on Monday. These impacts should ease as the tide
moves out again Monday afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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