Beach goers and surfers should be aware of a high surf advisory in effect Thursday at a number of San Diego County beaches.
The warning for Seal Beach, Oceanside Beach, La Jolla Shores and Imperial Beach is in effect until 5 p.m.
The advisory calls for waves and surf estimated at 4 to 7 feet tall with 8-foot local sets, according to the National Weather Service.
Forecasters are encouraging swimmers and surfers to take precautions, as the high surf will include strong rip currents that will create hazardous conditions.
The high surf will gradually dissipate by the afternoon.
