Mixed tides for New Orleans

Hurricane Isaac is projected to head for New Orleans with a landfall between 8 PM Tuesday and 8 PM Wednesday.  What a gloomy thought.  

Wondering how tides could work for or against the latest fate of southern Louisiana and New Orleans, I found a webpage of tides on the Louisiana coast and bayou area.  The tides around there are "mixed" high and low tides that occur once a day each and not with an obvious progression from day to day.
