They said the surf will be building this morning and peak from this
afternoon through Saturday evening. Breakers of between 5 and 7 feet are expected at west-facing beaches at the height of the event, with maximum sets of 10 feet at some locations.

A high surf advisory will be in effect from 3 p.m. today until 9 a.m.
Sunday in Los Angeles County. In Orange County, it will expire at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Rain is in Saturday’s forecast, but NWS forecasters said it would be light, perhaps totaling a 10th of an inch in L.A. County.
