March to May tide tables

Sea levels are likely to be normal or below normal as weak El Nino conditions continue for the next few months.

Whilst there are no King Tide warnings over the next couple of months, any larger wave conditions occurring at high tide will still have the potential to cause wave overwash and flooding.

December 2018 to February 2019 Tide Tables

Sea levels are likely to be around normal for the next few months despite weak El Nino conditions beginning to form. Some forecast models are suggesting a slightly higher mean sea level, some slightly lower.

The December to February period is normally a time of higher high tides when there is usually an increased risk of high tide flooding. High tides are expected on the following dates:

Saturday 8th December
Friday 21 to Tuesday 25th December
Sunday 6 to Tuesday 8th January
Saturday 19 to Thursday 24th January
Monday 18 to Thursday 21st February

During these periods (and possibly the days just before and afterwards) flooding of low lying areas is likely to occur, particularly if larger waves coincide with high tide. Wave overwashing at places such as Paal and Mosral is highly likely.

December 2017 – February 2018 Tide Tables and High Tides

Sea-levels around Kosrae are likely to be between 3-5 inches higher than normal over the next few months.

Some of the highest tides of the year also tend to occur during the December to February period. With higher than normal sea-levels, high tides will be pushed even higher than they normally are, resulting in very high water levels at high tide around every Spring tide over the next 3 months.

High tides above 7 feet are expected on the following dates:

  • Saturday 2nd to Thursday 7th December
  • Sunday 17th to Thursday 21 December
  • Sunday 31st December to Friday 5th January
  • Monday 15th January to Saturday 20th January
  • Monday 29th January to Saturday 5th February
  • Wednesday 14 February to Sunday 18th February
  • Wednesday 28th February to Saturday 3 March

During these periods (and possibly the days just before and afterwards) flooding of low lying areas is likely to occur, particularly if larger waves coincide with high tide. Wave overwashing at places such as Paal and Mosral is highly likely.

December 2016 to February 2017 Tide Tables

Sea-levels around Kosrae are still higher than normal and are likely to continue to be about 4 inches higher than normal over the next few months.

Some of the highest tides of the year also tend to occur during the December to February period. This is because the diurnal (once daily) tide component has its largest influence around the summer solstice (in December).

High tides above 7 feet are expected on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 13th to Friday 16th December
  • Friday 30th Saturday 31 December
  • Wednesday 11th to Sunday 15 January
  • Friday 27th to Monday 30th January
  • Friday 10th to Sunday 12 February
  • Sunday 26th to Monday 27th February

During these periods (and possibly the days just before and afterwards) flooding of low lying areas is likely to occur, particularly if larger waves coincide with high tide. Wave overwashing at places such as Paal and Mosral is highly likely.
