Black line represents measured minus predicted tide. Red dots represent wind speed data during S and SE winds. Blue dots represent wind speed data during N and NE winds. The dominant SE wind stacks water against the coast, causing measured tides to exceed predicted tides. Conversely, north winds during cold fronts push water away from the coast, causing measured tides to drop by up to 2 feet. Tropical depression Cindy created high tides of up to 3 feet.
