Predicted tide times are shown for the Biloxi Bay area. You may compute tide times for other points listed by subtracting or adding hours and minutes as indicated. A minus time indicates an earlier tide and a plus time a later tide. Tide times are shown in Central Daylight Saving Time from 2 a.m. March 12, 2017, to 2 a.m. November 5, 2017. The other months are computed in Central Standard Time. If Congress changes the enactment or termination date of Daylight Saving Time, tide will change 1 hour earlier than the time computed for this period.

Changes in winds and barometric conditions cause variations in sea level from day to day. Winds blowing toward shore or low barometric pressure will cause the heights of both high and low tides to be higher than predicted.

In this area, height predictions are calculated from mean low water charts. These are the average low tide readings.
