Multiple flood alerts have been issued across the county as large tidal surges are expected.
They are warning residents to "be prepared" for possible coastal flooding at lunchtime on Tuesday, January 4 as a large tidal surge is expected to affect the foreshores as a result of high spring tides and strong winds.
Tides will be at their highest between 11:30 and 12:00 with high tide at 11:45.
There is also expected flooding to roads and low lying land at these times, however they warn these conditions may apply two to four hours either side of high tide. They expect flooding to affect coastal areas, particularly low lying land and roads nearest the sea.
A spokesman for the Environment Agency said: "We are closely monitoring the situation and our incident response staff are prepared to respond if required. Please remain aware of your local situation."
Coastal conditions are expected to continue until after the high tides at 12:45 on Wednesday, January 5.
The flood alerts will be updated tomorrow afternoon or as the situation changes, according to the Environment Agency.
