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.
