San Diegans should be careful at the beach on Sunday with potentially dangerous surf and rip currents expected throughout the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
The cause is a series of moderately-sized, long-period swells headed this way from the South. The NWS expects the surf to be three to six feet high along San Diego County beaches with even higher sets at The Wedge. Orange County may experience even higher surf with waves five to eight feet tall.
It’s also important to be aware of possible erosion to beach cliffs and minor coastal flooding, according to the NWS. This is most likely during the high tide.
If caught in a riptide, the NWS reminds everyone to swim horizontally out of the current and then to shore.
