Waves up to 12 feet are expected along portions of the Southern and Central California coast through tomorrow, and significant
coastal flooding and beach erosion is forecast for later in the week, the National Weather Service reported.

High surf of six to 10 feet is expected on west-facing beaches in Los
Angeles County and points north tonight through Tuesday, according to the NWS, which issued a high-surf advisory through 6 p.m. tomorrow. Local sets up to 12 feet are possible before the surf subsides late Thursday afternoon and evening, the weather service reported.

Forecasters also said there is potential for a “prolonged very high
surf event with coastal flooding and beach erosion Thursday through Sunday.”

According to the NWS  “a long period west-northwest swell will bring very large surf to the Central Coast through Tuesday. This in combination with relatively high tides will bring a risk of minor coastal flooding and beach erosion to area beaches,”
especially near the time of high tide.

Due to the long period, some of this swell energy will be able to move into the Santa Barbara Channel and bring high surf to west facing beaches of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

A second period of high surf, from Thursday through Sunday, has the
potential to bring even higher surf conditions, more widespread coastal flooding and beach erosion, forecasters said.

Swimmers were being advised to be wary of rip tides and to swim close to manned lifeguard towers.
