High Surf Advisory at San Diego Beaches

A high surf advisory has been issued this weekend for some Southern California beaches, the National Weather Service (NWS) confirmed.

The advisory is in effect through 3 p.m. Sunday, with high surf expected north of Newport Beach and south of Encinitas. The NWS says waves are expected to hit six to nine feet, with some sets at 11 feet.

Other beaches may see surf between four and seven feet through Sunday afternoon.

“We could see some sets of up to eight feet at west and northwest-facing beaches, but not as big as earlier in the week,” explained NBC 7 meteorologist Greg Bledsoe.

The NWS says the highest tide is expected around 8:54 a.m. Sunday, coming in at about 6.4 feet.

The high surf will result in dangerous swimming conditions and strong rip currents. Minor coastal flooding and some beach erosion during high tide are also possible, according to the NWS.

Weather-wise in San Diego, Bledsoe says there’s a slight chance for showers Saturday afternoon, increasing to a 50 percent chance of light rain later in the night.

The NWS has also issued a wind advisory for parts of San Diego County from 6 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday.
