A high surf advisory is in effect in San Diego County as a southwest swell that originated from a powerful storm near New Zealand reaches Southern California.

The advisory will be in force through 5 p.m. Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

"The greatest size and largest surf and swell will be Thursday and Friday,'' the agency advised.

Surf heights were expected to range between 7 and 9 feet, with sets up to 11 feet.

"The surf will gradually lower over the weekend, but still remain above average with strong rip currents both Saturday and Sunday," according to the Weather Service.
