SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego County coastline is in for another day of strong rip currents and larger than normal surf Thursday resulting from a Tropical Storm Marie-related swell, forecasters said.
A National Weather Service beach hazards statement for the county's coastal areas is set to remain in effect through 1 a.m. Friday.
Surf of 6 to 8 feet with occasional sets that could reach up to 10 feet are expected to hit the beaches of northern Orange County, but forecasters said the surf along San Diego County beaches would generally stay under 7 feet.
Forecasters said 4- to 6-foot surf is expected today, with the highest surf at beaches north of Oceanside. However, the rip currents and longshore currents expected at local beaches could be particularly strong, according to the statement.
The currents could result in dangerous swimming and surfing conditions, according to the weather service. Beachgoers were advised to obey posted warning signs, use caution in and around the water and to swim near a lifeguard
The swell is expected to gradually fade Friday and Saturday, the NWS statement said.
