High Surf Through Tuesday

From the National Weather Service Los Angeles:

All eyes are on the first significant storm of the season Sun night-Mon. We're looking at 0.5-1" of rain across the board with 1-2" across SW facing coastal slopes.

A large northwest swell will bring elevated to high surf to most west-facing beaches through at least Tuesday. Large breaking waves of 8 to 12 feet with local sets to 15 are expected along the Central Coast and 6 to 9 feet with local sets to 12 feet are expected along the Ventura County Coast. Elevated surf of 3 to 6 feet is expected along west-facing beaches of the Santa Barbara South Coast and the Los Angeles County Coast. The surf will peak twice: first on Sunday, then a higher peak is expected Monday afternoon and evening. There is a high likelihood that the Beach Hazards Statement for the LA County Coast will be upgraded to a High Surf Advisory on Monday. There is a high rip current risk for most beaches, so use extreme caution when in or near the water, and always swim near a lifeguard. Stay off rocks and jetties and never turn your back to the ocean.
