NWS: High Weekend Surf Expected North Of LA

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The National Weather Service says high surf is expected along some coastlines north of Los Angeles this weekend.

Surf of 10 to 14 feet will occur on west facing beaches Saturday through Sunday morning in parts of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties.

The surf will also cause strong currents that could pose a threat to swimmers.

The weather service says the waves are the result of a storm in the eastern Pacific.

In addition, forecasters say higher than normal surf of up to six feet is possible through Saturday night on west facing beaches of southern Santa Barbara County as well as Ventura and Los Angeles counties and Catalina Island.
