King tides coming this weekend

ADVERTISEMENT

As Tropical Storm Erika gains strength today as it heads toward the Eastern Caribbean, South Florida’s yachting community prepares for some weather the early part of next week. Add to that some expected King Tides and there’s more to plan for.

The city of Ft. Lauderdale released an alert today calling attention to expected King Tides this weekend. The proximity of the moon make high tides a few inches higher, and with inclement weather, more flooding is expected.

High tides between Aug. 29-Sept. 2 are expected to be about 3 feet higher than mean lower low water (MLLW). Normally, they are between 2.5 and 2.8 feet above.

Above-average high tides are also expected Sept. 26-Oct. 2, Oct. 24-31 and Nov. 24-27.
