To help guide water management decisions, SFWMD has launched a weekly Tidal Outlook Forecast, published every Monday, to report conditions – such as wind strength and direction, ocean currents – that can cause tides to occur higher or lower than predicted at certain locations.

There is no anticipated tropical activity or meteorological factors – such as wind strength and direction, sea level pressure – that are expected to further heighten tidal levels during the forecast period.

SFWMD will continue to monitor, respond and document tidal levels during King Tide season. These weekly updates are intended to be informational for interested stakeholders and the public. If conditions warrant, additional updates may be issued throughout the forecast period.

To receive these weekly updates, go to SFWMD's email signup page, enter your email address and check the "King Tide Forecast” option.
