NWS: Parts of South Florida Could See Minor Issues from King Tides

Just as many parts of our region have started finally drying out from recent flooding, more water could be on the way.

The good news, however, is that forecasters don’t believe there will be a repeat of recent weeks.

With the new moon being on Sunday, king tides are set to follow.

That closeness of the moon to the Earth means streets that have already seen more than their fair share of the wet stuff could see some more standing water, for a little while.

With that in mind, the National Weather Service in Miami has issued a coastal flood statement through Tuesday, according to The Palm Beach Post and WTVJ.

Luckily, NWS meteorologists don’t believe the winds will be strong enough to create major flooding issues, The Post reports.

High tide times on Sunday are set for about 8 a.m and 8:20 p.m.

As for Monday, they will occur around 9 a.m. and again at about 9:10 p.m.

Flooding related to king tide usually begins affecting South Florida during the month of September, and subsides in December.
