The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Coastal

time of high tide which is around daybreak on Sunday.
High tide will be about one foot below the typical highest tide
but windy weather and waves could cause some minor flooding along
the beaches because of the waves.
A north wind of 20 to 30 mph and wind waves 3 to 5 feet is
expected over Puget Sound Sunday. The north wind should develop
late tonight to around daybreak Sunday.
