..LOW WATER LEVELS EXPECTED WITH THE OVERNIGHT LOW TIDE
 
 
ASTRONOMICAL LOW TIDES AND WEST-SOUTHWEST WINDS, WILL RESULT IN  
ABNORMALLY LOW WATER LEVELS OVERNIGHT INTO EARLY THURSDAY. THE  
LOWEST LEVELS WILL OCCUR BETWEEN 4 AM AND 6 AM, DROPPING BETWEEN  
1 AND 2 FEET BELOW THE NORMAL LOW TIDE.  
 
MARINERS SHOULD USE SPOTLIGHTS IF NAVIGATING OVERNIGHT, INCLUDING  
THE ICW, WHERE, AS WITH INLETS AND ENTRANCES, EXPOSED SAND BARS  
AND SHOALING WILL BE NOTICEABLE, AND OF GREATER EXTENT, REMAIN  
NEAR THE ICW CENTER CHANNEL LINE TO AVOID RUNNING AGROUND. IF  
NAVIGATING NEAR-SHORE ON THE OCEAN, KEEP IN MIND, THE SURF ZONE  
USUALLY EXTENDS FARTHER OFFSHORE DURING VERY LOW WATER LEVELS.
