SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Forecasters are urging people enjoying the Northern California coast to be careful as high tides and big waves hit the region's beaches during the next few days.

The National Weather Service says so-called King Tides — caused by a rather unique combination of how the sun, the moon and the earth align — will bring the highest tides of the year on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings.

Forecasters say a tide surge of 9.6 feet is expected in Redwood City a little before 11 a.m. Thursday, while areas near the Golden Gate Bridge will see a tide of 7.2 feet.

Along with the high tides, forecasters say a building swell will bring large breaking waves to area beaches.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports http://bit.ly/RpYTZt the combination of high tides and surf has flooded some parking lots in San Francisco and in Marin County.
