    The weather may be lovely for most of the region but there’s still a severe weather threat for parts of South Jersey and Delaware Sunday night. Minor tidal flooding is anticipated and road closures are possible along the entire Jersey Shore and Delaware shoreline. 

    A coastal flood advisory will be in effect from 7 p.m. to midnight for Sussex County, Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Ocean County, Atlantic County, Cape May County and parts of Burlington County.

    According to the National Weather Service, minor tidal flooding is likely. A high tide will occur at the Raritan Bay around 8 p.m. and will work its way into the Delaware Bay over the course of a few hours. Officials say there will be flooding along roadways prone to tidal flooding during this time.

    Drivers are advised to not leave their vehicles in areas prone to tidal flooding and to not drive through flood waters.
