The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for Thanksgiving Day, which could result in dangerous swimming conditions.

The advisory begins at 2 p.m. Thursday and will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Friday.

Five to seven-foot surf with sets up to nine-feet are expected.

The National Weather Service says strong rip currents are likely, especially early Thursday afternoon, as high tide transitions to low tide.

Wednesday night, waves could be seen churning up the coast of Solana Beach.

If you head to the beach this holiday, be careful where you park your car. There may be flooding in low lying areas, such as beach parking lots.

The National Weather Service is blaming this event on a west/northwest swell generated by low pressure over the eastern Pacific.
