The Tides of March

Notable High Tides this month include a +5.4-foot tide at 7:47am on Saturday, March 27; a +5.4-foot tide at 8:36am on Sunday, March 28; and a +5.5-foot tide at 9:06pm also on Sunday, March 28. The lowest tides are -0.8 feet on two occasions: 1:35pm on Friday, March 26, and 2:12pm on Saturday, March 27. These tides are neither very high nor very low, which is consistent with a yearly pattern, driven by the seasonal paths of the sun and moon, that minimizes tidal extremes near the spring and fall equinoxes and maximizes the tidal extremes near the summer and winter equinoxes.

The Full Moon on Monday, March 29 is set to rise dramatically over the East County horizon only a few miniutes after the time of sunset, weather permitting. Subsequent full moonrises, late April through August, may be quite obscured by the usual evening low clouds near the coast -- so enjoy the show now. Some folk names for March full moons inlcude "crow moon," "moon of winds," "plow moon," "sap moon," and "seed moon."
