High tides flood the California coast

High tides flooded the southern California coast near Newport Beach on Friday, causing severe flood damage to cars and homes in the area.

High surf warnings and danger signs on the beach remain in force along parts of the coast until Monday noon.

Meanwhile, a storm clock remains in place off the coast of coastal California over the holiday weekend, where ocean waves could reach 13 feet.

A long period of south-southwest winds will bring high surf and tear currents on the California coast this weekend, where minor coastal floods are expected to continue during high tide.

Tides are expected to peak at 9.15 pm local time at 6.6 feet, with waves up to 8 feet high along the beaches.

California is also facing several fires, including a new fire that started on Friday afternoon.

Monte R Fire has burned at least 100 acres since Friday and is 15% content.

Although fire conditions are not expected to be too worrying, there is a “high fire risk” in northern Nevada, including the cities of Reno and Carson City.

In most of the United States, heat index values ​​are expected to rise on Independence Day. Many areas, including Texas, Louisiana and the Plains, will see heat ratios in the 90s and 100s.

The next few days will remain extremely hot with heat index temperatures close to or above 90 from California to Philadelphia.

The heat is not going anywhere as another potential “heat wave”, defined as three days of 90 degrees or higher, is expected in portions of the eastern United States starting next week.

The heat will not be the only meteorological problem facing Americans on Saturday, as severe storms are expected in a large area of ​​the High Plains, which stretches from central Montana to northwestern Minnesota. The main threats will be harmful winds, hail and the potential for some isolated tornadoes.

Much of the southern United States is expected to see heavy rain during the holiday weekend.

Rainfall totals could reach 4 inches in portions of the southern Gulf states, including in New Orleans and the surrounding area.
