High Surf Advisory In Effect Along San Diego’s Shores

SAN DIEGO — Strong rip currents and elevated surf are expected along the San Diego County coastline again Friday, but should lessen in the afternoon.

National Weather Service

In this Nov. 29, 2013 National Weather Service map, the coastal area colored in purple indicates where a high surf warning advisory took effect.

A National Weather Service high surf advisory for the county's coastal areas is scheduled to remain in effect until 6 p.m.

Sets along exposed west-facing beaches could reach up to 9 feet, NWS forecasters said.

Strong rip currents are likely, especially during the transition from high tide to low tide during late morning and early afternoon hours, NWS meteorologists said.

Minor flooding in low-lying coastal areas, such as beach parking lots, could occur during high tide, forecasters said. Localized beach erosion could also be possible.

National Weather Service meteorologists said a large west-northwest was creating higher surf along the beaches. The swell and surf are expected to decrease Friday afternoon.
