(old article, but ongoing continuing pattern? "Boon, a professor emeritus of marine science who has studied tides most of his career, described how Atlantic wind patterns and currents can subtly shift, often without explanation. The shift, in turn, pushes more water onto East Coast beaches, marshes and coastline through higher tides.")
or am I missing something else?
Usually, I find if forecasts are chest high, buoy wvht is fairly accurate. I just don't know what to make of today
