A flood alert is in force for the Isle of Wight coast today (Friday).
Friday evening's tide at 10.56pm is higher than normal due to unsettled weather with light Southerly Force 1 winds.
For one hour either side of high water, very minor impact flooding will affect some sea front roads, esplanades and car parks across the island.
Water will be high up slipways in Cowes, affecting Medina Road and the floating bridge.
In East Cowes, sea water forced up through drains may cause very minor impacts to the road at Albany Road.
The tide levels are elevated over the next 5 days.
This may cause some impacts at each high water.
At Medina Road, near the Floating Bridge, the tide may rise to be only 0.1m below the top of front door steps.
As a precautionary measure, it is recommend that flood protection is installed at Medina Road one hour before high tide.
