This morning we’re waking up to raucous waves crashing on the bulkhead with spray flying over…and we’re still a couple hours from high tide (as I write this post). We think there’s pretty strong odds that we may flood…hence the “barking dog report” to warn our neighbors who might flood in these conditions too.
Here’s what we’re basing the report on.
Let’s start with the tides:
Add the Puget Sound Marine forecast with a Gale Warning in effect until 4:00 pm.
555 AM PST TUE DEC 20 2016
GALE WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 PM PST THIS AFTERNOON
TODAY SW WIND 25 TO 35 KT. WIND WAVES 5 TO 7 FT. A CHANCE OF SHOWERS.
Factor in a high tide of 12.18 at 10.08 this morning. Right now (7:30 am), we are at about 8 feet and we have water and spray splashing over.
