Time span: between 4:00 and 8:00 a.m. AST Sunday morning.
High tide: near 6:00 a.m AST

Coastal erosion is possible in vulnerable areas. Exposed coastal areas are at risk of flooding, and vessels and marine infrastructure in those areas are at risk of damage. Marine interests close to the shoreline should stay alert for worsening conditions, especially during high tide.
