LOS ANGELES (AP) - Forecasters say a combination of astronomical high tides, high surf and strong winds will bring minor flooding to low-lying areas of the Southern California coast this week.

The National Weather Service has issued coastal flood advisories for all counties from San Luis Obispo south to San Diego between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.

The so-called king tides will peak Friday morning around 7 feet, depending on location.

The conditions may cause some flooding across beaches, parking lots and around estuaries, lagoons and harbors.

The weather service notes that Los Angeles County's Alamitos Bay has a history of minor tidal overflows when tides are around 7 feet. Parts of Pacific Coast Highway between Sunset Beach and Seal Beach could see standing water.
