Active Weather Alerts

Marine Weather Statement
Issued: 12:21 AM Feb. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service
Astronomical low tides will result in abnormally low water levels
overnight. The lowest levels will occur between midnight and 3 AM
Wednesday, dropping between 1 and 2 feet below the normal low
tide.

Boaters should use spotlights at night if navigating the
Intracoastal Waterway where the width of inlets and entrances
become narrower. Exposed sand bars and shoaling will be
noticeable. Remain near the Intracoastal Waterway's center channel
line to avoid running aground. If navigating near-shore on the
ocean, keep in mind, the surf zone usually extends farther
offshore during very low water levels.
