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.

L.A County surf will build to between 4 and 8 feet today, then peak at between 5 and 10 feet tonight through Saturday night. In Orange County, forecasters expect surf of between 3 and 6 feet today, 4 to 7 feet by Saturday night.

“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
in Mission Viejo and San Gabriel; 87 in Pasadena; 88 in Woodland Hills; and 89 in Yorba Linda.

Temperatures will drop a few degrees Saturday, rise several degrees
Sunday and remain at that level until Wednesday, when a significant cooling trend will begin, entailing drops of 10 degrees and more in many communities, although temperatures will generally remain in the 70s.
