King Tides for January 11-12, 2021

High Tides for January 8-14, 2021

Living near the ocean we get to enjoy the many things that it has to offer, but we also have to deal with the issues it can bring. One of these issues are the occasionally higher than normal tides, sometimes referred to as “King” Tides. However, as opposed to other natural issues, we know when these high tides will occur far in advance. Check out these expected high tides in the coming month that may impact traffic and parking in flood-prone areas, especially during winter weather. Take note so you don’t end up getting wet by surprise.

Community members should be aware of the following High Tides that may impact low-lying areas in Southern Marin:
