From National Public Radio:

A software engineer for the National Center for Atmospheric Research believes that a phenomenon known in meteorological science as wind set-down may have caused the parting of the Reed Sea.

“The place I picked is not at the Red Sea proper, it’s at the north end of the Suez Canal in one of the shallow lagoons along the Mediterranean Sea.” ... This is the same area where a British general named Alexander Tulloch witnessed a similar wind set-down event in 1882.

“He observed a strong east wind blow all night long, and in the morning the water had completely disappeared,” says Drews. “The lake was blown seven kilometers to the west.”
