SFWMD - Weekly King Tide Forecast

diak -

South East Florida - Tuesday October 3, 2023: The South Florida Water Management District's Tidal Outlook for the forecast period of October 2 through October 9, predicts heightened tidal levels along South Florida's east coast through Wednesday, October 4.

The heightened tidal levels are due to a combination of meteorological and astronomical factors.

As a result, minor to moderate coastal flooding is anticipated at high tide along coastal areas of Martin, St. Lucie, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties. Water levels are likely to quickly subside by Wednesday afternoon.
