High Surf Advisory Issued for Malibu Coastline

Forecasters predict surf of between three and six feet, with local sets of eight feet at west- and northwest-facing beaches as a result of a long-period northwest swell.

High surf will slam the Southern California coast this weekend, accompanied by dangerous rip currents, according to the National Weather Service forecasters.

A high surf advisory will be in effect from the Central Coast down to the Southland from 8 a.m. Saturday until 9 a.m. Monday. The high surf is expected to start pounding Los Angeles County Saturday night.

"Expect very strong rip currents with this high surf event,'' the weather service warned in advisory.

"If not a strong swimmer, stay out of the water. Always swim near a lifeguard if possible. Do not climb across jetties and never turn your back to the ocean as sneaker waves could throw you into the ocean.''

Forecasters predicted surf of between three and six feet, with local sets of eight feet at west- and northwest-facing beaches as a result of a long-period northwest swell.
