What are King Tides, and When Do They Occur?

King tides are higher-than-usual tides which can produce local "sunny day" flooding, or flooding which occurs even though there is no rain. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) publishes predictions of high tide heights, which can be used to anticipate days on which king tides may occur. 

King Tides are currently predicted for Nov. 28-30, Dec. 26-28 and Jan. 13-15, according to Sea Grant Washington Program at the University of Washington.

Learn more about how you can be prepared before, during and after King Tides on the Island County Department of Emergency Website.
