Calling all citizen scientists! Are you interested in helping document tidal flooding in our community? Both groups and individuals can help. If you are interested in "adopting" a site to monitor and report, please email resilience@broward.org. 

 

 

The table below summarizes the predicted peak dates and heights for 2019, in feet above North American Vertical Datum (NAVD). As a reference, the average high tide for this location in 2019 is 0.40 feet NAVD.

These predictions are based on the South Port Everglades Tidal Station ​operated by NOAA. This is the closest station that will be fully monitored in 2018. This operational station gives up to date tidal information, wind speed/direction and temperature data.                         


In addition, NOAA extrapolates predicted tides throughout various sites in Broward County. In the map below, please click on a station name to be redirected to that stations specific predictions that are offset for height and timing for that location. Note that these predictions are based on gravitational forces only and that offshore weather (winds, currents, and/or storms) often will magnify or diminish predicted tides.
