High Tides this weekend may cause flooding in prone areas in Moreton Bay Region

Residents living or working in Moreton Bay side areas or low-lying parts of the region are being warned high tides might cause flooding this weekend.

Local Tide Tables advise there will be a predicted tide peak of (2.02m)  at 9:22 am and (2.69 m) at  9:49 pm relative to Beachmere

A predicted tide peak of (2.10m) at 10:11 am and (2.66m) at 10:34 pm for  Saturday.

For Sunday tide peak of (2.16m) at 10:59 am and (2.56m) at 11:17 pm

Finally for Monday peak tides (2.19m) at  11:46 am and (2.39m) at 11:59 pm and Tuesday just the one High Tide at 12:34 pm of (2.18m)

Due to current meteorological conditions, a tidal anomaly may cause these tide peaks to be higher than predicted,

These high tides are expected to be similar to the high tides experienced earlier this month.

Minor localised flooding may be experienced in bayside, riverside and low-lying parts of nearby suburbs.

Areas connected to foreshore, and tide-affected areas of the river, creeks and other waterways may also be affected.

Residents in areas prone to localised flooding due to high tides are advised to avoid parking their cars on the street during these times.
