King Tides peak Monday morning along Central Coast

Posted: Updated:

King Tides are rolling into Central Coast water this early week. 

According to NOAA, a "king tide" refers to an abnormally high tide when there is alignment of gravitational pull between the sun and moon. 

This map pinpoints the timing of king tides at various locations along the California coast. 

In the waters off Santa Barbara, the king tides will peak at approximately 9:10 Monday morning. Waves are expected to be almost seven feet high. 

Low tide is predicted to occur at 4:20 a.m. along the south coast. 

At Port San Luis, the tides are predicted to reach their peak at about 9:30 a.m. Monday. Waves will also be nearly seven feet high near Avila Beach. 

Low tide will happen there at about 4:45 p.m. Monday. 

The waves are expected to be high in Morro Bay Tuesday. 

California State Parks will host a live broadcast on Periscope Tuesday morning at 10:30 showing the king tides in Morro Bay. 

King tides are a popular photographic opportunity but authorities warn people try to document the waves to be safe and keep your distance. 

We would love to see your photos of the king tides posted to social media with #beonksby!
