Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement about high tides for the Saanich Peninsula, Southern Gulf Islands and Metro Vancouver.

Around the time of high tides on Saturday and Sunday, a low barometric pressure will combine with a period of high astronomical tide.

Minor coastal flooding is possible.

“The threat from wind and waves accompanying high water levels will be greatest on Sunday,” Environment Canada says in a notice on its website. “Elevated water levels at high tide are likely to persist on Monday and Tuesday.”

According to tide-forecast.com, high tide for Victoria will be at 10:19 a.m. on Saturday and 10:48 a.m. on Sunday.
