SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — King Tides give us a look at what high tides are going to look like in the future because of sea level rise.

Additionally, the NWS Bay Area issued a Coastal Flooding Advisory until 1 p.m. Tuesday, and a High Surf Advisory until 7 p.m. Monday.

“These events will overlap to create hazardous conditions in the surf zone/beach areas along with minor coastal flooding,” according to NWS Bay Area.

The California King Tides Project says the tides will arrive from Dec. 13 through Dec. 15.

In mid November, King Tides hit the Bay Area coastlines for the first time of the season.

King Tides occur when the earth, moon and sun are near alignment and when the moon is in its closest position to the earth.

The annual tides help scientists identify sea level rise vulnerabilities.

Earlier this year, Pier 3 on the Embarcadero reached its peak.
