WASHINGTON (AP) — Forecasters are warning water levels will continue to rise in the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River, which could cause coastal flooding.

A flood warning remains in effect through Wednesday morning for waterfronts in Baltimore and Harford County and areas along the Potomac River in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.

The National Weather Service says moderate tidal flooding is expected throughout Tuesday and into the evening. Water levels could rise two to four feet above normal tide Tuesday.

Forecasters say coastal residents should remain on alert for rising water.
