Couple of comments..not meant to be unkind.

Read the red tide posts below!

What "is" today, may not be tomorrow

Very localized ie a 500 hundred yards may make a difference and you did not tell us what beach concerns you.

See Visitbeaches.org for info

Dave,

So from your dates the King Tide is happening today and the next few days? Meaning that red tide would get worse the next couple of days? Is that what they are saying?

Will be interesting to see. I am hoping they are not correct!

I think they are saying the tides may bring "in" the nasty red tide from offshore and put it on the beach or. push it into the bays closer to mainland

There is a tropical storm forming in the Gulf based on new weather reports ...maybe rain in our area by Wednesday. (Not a hurricane)

No one can predict the effect this will have on the red tide.

Very local status. Lido can be "none" but Coquina "heavy". But still in the area. Nothing seems to effect the overall presence...it may be a permanent fixture.

The north end of Longboat Key is free of red tide.
