Minor to moderate coastal flooding is possible during this storm; the high tides of most concern are the ones around midday Wednesday, November 7th   and late Wednesday night.  The late Wednesday night high tide will be more problematic in New Jersey than Delaware given the expected movement of the storm.

Normal high tides are relatively low in this time frame, as we are between the full & new moon.
