King tides will cause minor flooding Friday and Saturday at some San Diego County beaches

A combination of king tides and elevated surf will produce minor flooding at many San Diego County beaches on Friday and Saturday and could impact navigation in local harbors, says the National Weather Service.

The high-tide mark will reach 7 feet at 8:08 a.m. on Friday and the same level at 8:54 a.m. on Saturday. At the same time, waves will be in the 3-to-5 foot range at some beaches.

The weather service says flooding is most likely to occur at Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, Seaside and Cardiff state beaches, as well as the Oceanside Strand.

There will be a minus 1.8-foot low tide at 3:33 p.m. Friday and a minus 1.5-foot low at 5:08 p.m. on Saturday. The drop will expose the wonders to be found in local tide pools. Beachgoers should not turn their backs to the ocean when visiting the pools.
