The National Weather Service (NWS) in San Diego has issued a coastal flood advisory from 5 p.m. Sunday to 4 a.m. Tuesday, with moderate beach erosion and minor flooding affecting low-lying areas and parking lots in susceptible areas that include Cardiff-by-the-Sea near Highway 101, La Jolla and Del Mar.
Residents and businesses in areas susceptible to coastal flooding were advised to take precautions.
High tides of around 7 feet combined with larger than average surf could cause minor coastal flooding along low-lying beaches in San Diego County starting Sunday night, NWS forecasters predicted today.
Minor coastal flooding and beach erosion could occur around high tide Sunday and Monday evenings, mainly on south and southwest facing shores, according to the National Weather Service. Tides are expected to reach 7.4 feet at 8:56 p.m. Sunday and again at 9:42 p.m. Monday at Navy Pier, downtown San Diego.
Surf heights of 3-6 feet were also expected on south-facing beaches as a long-period swell was expected to build over coastal waters Sunday afternoon, the NWS reported.
