High surf will pound the coastline in Los Angeles and Orange counties today amid persisting high temperatures. A high surf advisory issued by the National Weather Service is in effect
in both Los Angeles an Orange counties. It will expire at 9 a.m. Sunday in L.A. County and 8 p.m. Sunday in Orange County.

“A high surf advisory means that high surf and rip currents will make
swimming and rock jetties dangerous,” said an NWS statement.

The NWS forecast sunny weather today and highs of 73 in Newport Beach; 74 in Avalon and Laguna Beach; 75 in Palmdale; 76 in Lancaster, Laguna Beach and San Clemente; 79 at LAX nd on Mount Wilson; 80 in Long Beach; 82 in Irvine; 83 in Anaheim; 84 in downtown L.A. and Fullerton; 85 in Burbank and Saugus; 86
