(WSB photo of king-tide/storm-surge flooding at Alki Bathhouse, December 17, 2012)
As our friends at Beach Drive Blog remind us, extra-high tides are on the way this weekend – another round of the so-called “king tides.” Without a storm in the forecast, we are NOT expecting the type of flooding that famously hit more than a year ago, as shown above, but we checked the tide charts for the entire year, and noted that the 13.3-foot high tides Saturday (7:22 am) and Sunday (8:04 am) mornings are the highest tides projected for all of 2014. Then after 13.1-foot high tides February 2nd and 3rd, we won’t see 13-foot high tides again until next Christmas Day.
Sorry, comment time is over.
