Very High Tides These Days

Veterens Day 2010 Extra High Tides
If you've been to DeKorte in late afternoon these days, you've noticed some really high tides — higher than predicted — and low tides that aren't low at all.

NJMC Naturalist Brett Bragin IMG_5140provided  the above graphic, and wrote:  "There were coastal flood warnings posted for last night's high tide.  See the predicted vs. actual tides measured at The Battery [above]."

This afternoon, a few parts of the Discovery Trail (see photo at right) were under water. If not for the floating boardwalk, far more of the trail would have been inaccessible.

Link to claculating the tides at DeKorte is here. High tides were around 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. today. They are an hour later each day, with low tide in the middle.
