After the recent string of sunny and calm afternoons here in San Diego it’s easy to become complacent when visiting the beach.
However, NBC 7 meteorologist Jodi Kodesh said there is a high surf advisory for our coastline through Saturday morning.
Waves are expected to range from six to 10 feet with local sets up to 12 feet in height.
At the wedge, waves could swell to 15 feet.
Beaches from Coronado to La Jolla are expected to have the highest surf.
The highest tides will peak at 6.3 feet during the mid-evening and recede to negative 0.5 feet during the early morning.
Kodesh recommends swimmers take caution over the next few days; even if the waves appear manageable strong rip currents and long shore currents make swimming conditions dangerous even for experienced swimmers.
If you do decide to head down to the beach to check out the waves make sure to stay off of the jetties; some waves may come over the top of the rocks knocking by standers off of their feet.
