Wakefield, Va. – The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for Norfolk, Portsmouth and Chesapeake along the Elizabeth River, Lafayette River and the Hague from 10:00 p.m. Tuesday until 4:00 a.m. Wednesday.

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that winds and tides will combine to create flooding in low areas along shorelines and near tidal rivers and creeks.

This could create road closures and minor flooding of properties.

Wave heights of 5-6 feet are expected through Tuesday night across the lower Chesapeake Bay. Minor beach erosion is expected from Ocean View to East Beach and Cape Henry.
