Higher-than-average tides and elevated surf will create a potential for minor coastal flooding in the San Diego area this week, the National Weather Service advised Monday.

From early Tuesday through Thursday evening, the ocean conditions could generate flooding of such low-lying areas as beach parking lots, adjacent streets and, possibly, structures, according to the federal agency.

Over the period, midmorning high tides are expected to reach about 7 feet, and wave sets up to 6 feet will be likely, forecasters reported.

An NWS coastal-flood advisory will be in effect from 5 a.m. Tuesday to 9 p.m. Thursday.
