A coastal flood advisory has been issued for Wednesday night into early Thursday for Long Island communities along the South Shore, according to the National Weather Service.

The advisory -- the fifth for Long Island in five days -- is in effect from 9 p.m. Wednesday to 1 a.m. Thursday for southwestern Suffolk and southern Nassau counties, the Upton-based service said. The advisory also includes Brooklyn and Queens.

Minor to moderate flooding of low-lying areas is expected during times of high tide, the service said.

Joe Pollina, a meteorologist with the service, said Wednesday that coastal flooding was reported in parts of Freeport, south of Atlantic Avenue, and in a few streets in northern Queens, all on Monday.

Also on Monday, tidal gauges in Queens and Nassau counties reached the moderate flood stage, he said.
