Highest tides of the year Sunday and Monday evenings

Recommended Posts

Whilst not reaching the heights of 2015, and forecasts all the way up to 2026 still don't attain those levels *, these always provide impressive sights (unless you're at risk of flooding in which case it's swearing and sandbags ahoy) with quays and coastal car parks flooding and drains backing up.

Just a heads up for anyone within easy reach of the sea or a tidal river.

The tides are the early evening one each day in Cornwall.

* Astronomical projections based upon the relative positions of the sun, earth and moon.  Low pressure and onshore winds will push them higher than these projections.

I grew up there.

Longsight and Levvie were very Irish over 30 years ago.

These days it's extremely culturally enriched.

One GF and some mates lived there. You had to go up the road a bit to find a black man to buy drugs from.

Must be why the "Sea levels to reach all time armageddon like heights" reports are in the news today.

Likely to be coastal flooding in the SW

16-20 ft swells forecast for high tide on Tuesday morning with force 7-8 winds from the west. Combined with low pressure - Severe weather.

As a result,  the low tides won't be as impressive, but the high tides will be!

I love this amazing power of nature.

The sea rise model was particulalry impressive as it showed that where I used to live, well inland in Gloucestershire, actually lay many feet below where I live now and would be flooded on a much lower tide.

Cant we just vapourize the sea around us, like the massive ET immersion heaters featured in Total Recall? OK, we'd have to coat all these coastal residences in a few feet of asbestos to deal with the raising of the ambient temperatures, but I think its worth it.

Yes, Tuesday's system has moderated, still sufficient with the tides to give flooding, however

The next that you mention to arrive will make the NW coast of Ireland an exciting place, where there is a 12m swell predicted at midnight.
