Washington beaches will see the highest tides of the year this weekend, peaking at 7:28 a.m. Sunday.
Meteorologist Andy Haner at the National Weather Service office in Seattle said the tide will measure 13.2 feet on Puget Sound in Seattle. Minor tidal overflow begins at 13.5 feet. Haner said flooding will likely be avoided because of relatively high atmospheric pressure forecast this weekend.
The highest tides of the year typically occur in January.
