With the rain over and 11-foot surf forecast for San Diego beaches, it may be a good surfing weekend, through rip currents could pose danger.
The National Weather Service office in San Diego has issued a high surf advisory beginning at 10 p.m. Thursday and continuing until 4 p.m. Sunday.
“A long period west-northwest swell will produce high surf with the potential for strong rip currents and local beach erosion Friday through Sunday,” the weather service said.
The swell from 290 degrees will create surf of 4-9 feet with local sets up to 11 feet along San Diego beaches.
Highs will be in the mid 60s at the beaches from Friday through Saturday, but it will be cold overnight, and there is a 20% chance of light rain on Saturday.
