This is about 1.25 feet above the normal predicted tide. Saltwater flooding is also expected across the Upper Keys, especially the Bayside communities of Key Largo. Total water levels about 2 feet above mean sea level, or 1.25 feet above the normal predicted tide, are possible. * TIMING…Across the Middle Keys, impacts from saltwater flooding will be greatest during the extended high tide. The next extended high tide will occur from late this evening through the overnight hours. Across the Upper Keys, impacts from saltwater flooding will tend to persist, despite the tidal cycle, with little relief at low tide. * IMPACTS…Saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and lots is expected. Some storm drains will overflow, and some seawalls and docks will be overtopped. Boaters can expect less clearance under fixed bridges. Motorists should remember that persistent puddles are almost certain to contain a mix of saltwater. A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that above normal tides will cause flooding of low areas along the shore.
