The South Florida Water Management District's Tidal Outlook for the forecast period of November 20, 2023 through November 27, 2023, is now available. Minor coastal flooding is possible in Monroe County later this week and through the weekend. This is the result of higher than normal tidal levels that are expected in the SFWMD region near the time of the full moon on Monday, November 27. However, tidal levels are forecast to remain near-normal along the east coast of the SFWMD region with no flooding concerns expected.

SFWMD is continuing efforts for the monitoring, operational response and documentation of these events. These weekly updates are intended to be informational for interested stakeholders and the public. If conditions warrant, additional updates may be issued throughout the forecast period.
