For those on the Long Island Sound, high tide Tuesday will bring the greatest threats of flooding to communities along the Sound Shore.
Local meteorologist Joe Rao estimates the full moon phase will further increase the potential water rise of high tide by 20 percent. Rao said in a recent report, "The worst coastal flooding wrought by Sandy might actually come on Tuesday, all depending on exactly where and when the storm makes landfall."
There will be at least 3 more high tide cycles during the landfall of Hurricane Sandy. One will peak Monday night around 9:56 p.m.
High tides on Tuesday will occur at 10:10 a.m. and 10:36 p.m.
