WASHINGTON — The heavy rains have ended but high tide is now raising some concerns for certain areas in the District that may flood.

The National Weather Service has announced a flood advisory until 6 p.m. Monday.

Unprotected areas along the Potomac River on D.C.’s Southwest Waterfront near The Wharf are among the areas that could see some flooding during high tide, according to the National Weather Service.

Levels along the shoreline are 1.5 to 2.5 feet above normal due to the recent rainfalls.

The weather service said it expects a prolonged period of at least minor flooding, with moderate flooding near high tide. Water is expected to approach parts of Hains Point Loop Road, just across from The Wharf.

Water is also expected to approach buildings near King Street and Union Street.

A map of the areas that could be affected can be seen below.
