Please review the tidal chart for high tides expected in our area between Tuesday, May 19 and Thursday, May 21. Tides will be 3 to 5 feet above normal.
Also, with Tropical Storm Arthur moving out to sea along the NC-VA coast, we can expect winds out of the NE for this same period which can result in water from the Potomac overtopping some shoreline protection — bulkheads, armor stone, etc.

This chart shows locations along the Atlantic, Chesapeake, and the Potomac. At the bottom of the chart is Lewisetta, just up the Potomac from us. Our tides are similar to the Lewisetta tides that will range 2.7 to 4.0 feet above normal high tides.
