Sustained strong winds can blow water out of the bays or off-shore (west or northwest winds for NJ) and will cause a lower than normal low tide. Coupled with the bigger tides near a new or full moon and you'll have an even lower low tide.

 

Saturday night and Sunday have a forcast of 20-25kt NW winds + new moon on Monday = blowout tide

It looks like a new moon combined with big north wind will make low tide extremely low ie Blow out. Happens often on new moon and high offshore winds you really low tides. I live on estuary where water almost leaves flats area.

Every year I do recon at low to see what mother nature has in store for me to start the season. You get to see all of the new breaks, pools etc and create a new game plan. Blow out tides help in this matter.
