Default Is there a site for monitoring the bay's water level?

Do any of you know of a website that provides this information. The lowest part of my son's house is very close to the normal high tide level. It would be nice to know what the current water levels are...

Thanks gents... He spent the weekend here at the house, but he drove up yesterday am and said the water was coming over his seawall at about 8 am yesterday. He has to work today, so he won't be back to check on his place until tonight. From the top of his sea wall to his house, he has about another foot to foot and a half of height to go. His septic was all backed up though, so he came back here for the night. Hopefully, it didn't rise much more after yesterday am. He lives on the blackwater river just south of the I-10 bridge, so he's very suseptable to wind driven coastal flooding.

There should be a constant advise so everybody will be safe at least. I'm also looking for another site so I can check it regularly whenever unexpected happenings happen.

Here are some websites for you, and hope they help.

Here is the tide station for that general area:

Sun & moon data (to know when full and new moons occur each month; spring tides {strongest tides of month}):

Observed Water Level for Pensacola Bay:

Captdroot,

I have a link to the Environmental Modeling Center's; Real-Time Ocean Forecast System. It helps with finding salinities from the surface
to the bottom, locating eddies in gulf, water temp from surface to bottom, mixed layer, horizontal current, vertical velocity, and surface
height. Even in my infancy of saltwater sport fishing, I just look at moon, sun, water current speeds, wind directions, tides forecast, water temp, etc... then try to find an environment that the fish I'm looking for likes.

I'm certain you understand where I'm coming from.

My problem is once I'm on the water, is sticking to the plan for the most part; for there's a lot of water to cover, but not enough time in a single day to play Indiana Jones on the high seas looking for all those lost cities of bottom fish! j/k

Still, I try at the least to look for the villages that lead to these fishing Meccas!

Oh, almost forgot...the website.

Ah yes, "information overload"............ don't ya just hate when that happens! I've found the best time to go fishin is............ when I have time.

j/k, does any one sell a bathometric chip with contour data as small as one meter? That is priceless info when treasure hunting.
