West Seattle Weather Watch: Possible ‘tidal overflow’ ahead

The National Weather Service includes our area in an alert out tonight – a “coastal flood advisory,” for possible tidal overflow, especially during the high tides the next two mornings. At 6:08 tomorrow morning and 6:41 Friday morning, the high tide will be just under 12 feet – but a “tidal anomaly” may push the water a foot or two higher. So the NWS is alerting waterfront residents and anyone else who might be out on the shore.

    Nicklesville is about 30 feet above sea level, so they wouldn’t be effected by a 13 foot tide.

    Seems to be a problem in the wording.

    “especially during the high tides the next two mornings. At 6:08 tomorrow morning and 6:41 tomorrow morning”

    I enjoy your blog
