High Tides, High Surf Along Coast

San Diegans can expect to see a strong swell paired with high tide along our coast this week.

A coastal flood advisory was in effect through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

Sets of 5-foot waves were expected Tuesday with sets of 7-foot waves expected before week’s end.

Low-lying beaches were most susceptible for minor flooding. The highest high tides will occur between 9-11 a.m. each day.

As of 9:30 a.m., San Diego Lifeguards said there was really no significant impact except boat launch at La Jolla Shores.

"The tide is in quite high which is a little bit unusual," said Connie Adams Cardiff resident.

“It just makes the waves softer,” said surfer Chuck Glynn. “Makes it user friendly for a beginner surfer.”
