...ABNORMALLY LOW WATER LEVELS DURING LOW TIDE EARLY THIS
AFTERNOON...

THE APPROACH OF THE NEW MOON AND PERIGEE WILL INCREASE THE TIDAL
RANGES AND THIS WILL BRING HIGHER HIGH TIDES AND LOWER LOW TIDES
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

WEST TO SOUTHWEST WINDS OF 10 TO 20 KT THIS AFTERNOON WILL HELP
DRIVE WATER LEVELS TO MINUS 1.2 FT MLLW AND AS LOW AS MINUS 1.6 FT
MLLW WITH THE EARLY AFTERNOON LOW TIDE.

MARINERS SHOULD BE ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS AS THESE LOW WATER LEVELS MAY
MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO TRAVEL THROUGH INLETS AND BAYS. THE INCOMING
MID AFTERNOON TIDE WILL QUICKLY BRING WATER LEVELS BACK TO NORMAL.
