King Tide

What is a King Tide?

The King Tide is the highest predicted high tide of the year at a coastal location. It is above the highest water level reached at high tide on an average day. King Tide tidal flooding can be observed 1.5 to 2 hours before and after peak time. Severe flooding may result if King Tides coincide with bad weather conditions such as heavy rains, strong winds or big waves. King Tides are expected today, September 27th, and tomorrow, September 28th.
