SFWMD: Weekly King Tide Forecast

diak -

Treasure Coast- Monday October 9, 2023: A large extratropical area of low pressure could move off the coast of New England next weekend, sending a cold front southward into Florida.

Northwesterly winds behind the cold front could generate small swells along the east coast of the SFWMD's region.

These conditions, coupled with the New Moon on Saturday, October 14, could contribute to minor coastal flooding at high tide along the coastal areas of Martin, St. Lucie, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties.

These enhanced tidal conditions will quickly subside after the New Moon.
