Highest tide of year on Washington Coast

BEACHCOMBING -- Washington beaches will see the highest tides of the year this weekend, peaking at 7:28 a.m. Sunday.

Unfortunately, the peak comes a bit late for the razor clamming season that runs today and Saturday.

The National Weather Service says the tide will measure 13.2 feet on Puget Sound in Seattle. Minor tidal overflow begins at 13.5 feet.

The highest tides of the year typically occur in January
