Southbound motorists on the San Diego Freeway in Huntington Beach hit a real gusher Tuesday afternoon. Or maybe it was that the gusher hit them. They were cruising along about 2 p.m., enjoying warm, clear weather, when a spout of water suddenly arched onto the freeway, catching the first wave of drivers unaware and drenching their cars.

Clearing skies and slightly warmer temperatures mean there probably will be no repeat today of the rain-snarled commute that plagued drivers throughout Orange County on Thursday morning. Early morning fog is expected today, and a series of extremely high tides this weekend also is expected to keep residents watchful. However, the forecast is for clearing skies, higher temperatures and modest easterly winds, all of which should aid residents in low-lying coastal areas.

A handful of residents in the unincorporated community of Sunset Island in Huntington Harbour spent Wednesday fighting flood waters that seeped into their homes and garages at high tide. "I'm just hoping I can get the house dried out before this happens again," said David Havins, who pumped eight inches of water from his home just east of Pacific Coast Highway. Havins and some other island residents blamed their troubles on the 6-foot, 4-inch high tide that arrived at 7 a.m.
