Coastal flood warning issued due to king tides

The National Weather Service has issued a coastal flood advisory that will be in effect between 8 a.m. and noon today due to higher than usual tides often referred to as “king tides.”

“Extreme high tides will occur mid morning Saturday followed by
extreme low tides late Saturday afternoon,” weather service officials said in a coastal hazard message released at 3 a.m. this morning.

The advisory is in effect for the San Francisco Bay Shoreline, the San Francisco Peninsula Coast and the North Bay Interior Valleys, as well as for other areas further south.

Areas near the coast will likely see minor flooding, especially in low-lying areas, according to the weather service.

Similar tide fluctuations are expected Sunday as well.Bay Area News
