...BLOWOUT TIDES AFFECTING THE MARYLAND CHESAPEAKE BAY AND THE
TIDAL POTOMAC RIVER...

GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS HAVE CAUSED BLOW OUT TIDES IN THE MARYLAND
CHESAPEAKE BAY AND THE TIDAL POTOMAC RIVER. TIDAL ANOMALIES AROUND
2 FEET BELOW NORMAL ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE MIDDLE PORTION OF
THIS AFTERNOON BEFORE WINDS DIMINISH AND TURN TOWARD THE
SOUTHWEST. SOUTHERLY WINDS LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT WILL
ALLOW FOR WATER LEVELS TO RETURN CLOSER TO NORMAL. 

MARINERS SHOULD CHECK NAVIGATION CHARTS AND BE CAREFUL NOT TO
GROUND YOUR VESSEL...PARTICULARLY WHEN BOATING AWAY FROM THE MAIN
CHANNEL.
