Biggest bore tide of summer expected this week

If you happen to be in the nieghborhood.

Turnagain Arm's biggest bore tide of the summer is expected Tuesday south of Anchorage, according to tide tables.

The quick-moving bore tide waves provide surfers with a one-time shot to ride a wave in the narrow arm and sightseers with a chance to see a rare tidal phenomenon.

The exact wave height will depend on how strong and which way the wind is blowing, according to the state Department of Natural Resources.

The larger-than-average bore tides started Sunday (3:53 p.m.) and will last until Thursday. Smack in the middle of that time frame is the summer's largest bore tide, which is expected to send a wave past Bird Point, on the Seward Highway, at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.

2. What they meant to say is that it was the biggest boretide

projected to occur over the course of this entire summer. It's all based on the tidal charts, of course.
