        ...ELEVATED TIDES POSSIBLE THROUGH TONIGHT...

TIDE LEVELS HAVE INCREASED TO 1.0 TO 1.5 FEET ABOVE NORMAL THIS
MORNING DUE TO A PROLONGED EASTERLY FETCH. WATER LEVELS MAY RISE
FURTHER AS EAST WINDS WILL LIKELY PERSIST THROUGH THE DAY. THE
LONG EASTERLY FETCH HAS ALSO PRODUCED LONG PERIOD SWELLS THAT WILL
PROPAGATE TOWARD THE COAST. THIS COULD FURTHER INCREASE TIDAL
ACTION AND INCREASE THE RISK FOR SOME MINOR BEACH EROSION.

BELOW IS A TABLE WITH THE NEXT HIGH TIDE AND EXPECTED WATER LEVEL
AT THAT TIME.
