Coastal flood warning for Tuesday night through the morning

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A coastal flood warning remains in effect from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. for south coastal South Carolina.

Lingering influences from the recent full moon and a persistent onshore wind will continue to produce elevated tides along the coast of South Carolina.

Shallow coastal flooding can be expected. Some docks and low non floating piers could become inundated.

Some streets in downtown Charleston will flood but remain passable. Highway 80 will remain open between Wilmington Island and Tybee Island although water will approach it at several locations.

Salt water flooding of areas nearby to marshes and the intracoastal waterway will occur. Flooding will not be as extensive as what was experienced Monday evening.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that winds and tides will combine to generate flooding of low areas at and near the coast.
