Thursday morning, a so-called king tide brought waves crashing against the windows at the Marine Room near La Jolla Cove. Video sent to FOX 5 by Chef Bernard Guillas showed wave after wave splashing against the iconic restaurant's picture windows.
The unusually high tides have been pushing the surf further inland than normal this week. Wednesday, they caused flooding at La Jolla Shores. Another high tide on Christmas Day may cause flooding in low-lying beach areas along the immediate coast, including in Imperial Beach, South Mission Beach, La Jolla Shores, Cardiff-by-the-Sea and Oceanside.
A coastal flood advisory will expire at 10 a.m. Friday.
