... High surf advisory remains in effect until 9 am PST Sunday...

* surf and timing... surf of 10 to 15 feet with local sets to 18
feet tonight will gradually subside Saturday through Sunday.

rip currents that will create a risk of ocean drowning.
Sneaker waves can suddenly overrun previously dry beaches and
jetties around the time of high tide.

* Locations... surf will be highest on west and northwest facing
beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf and rip currents will
make swimming and rock jetties dangerous.

until you are free of the powerful current. Always swim near a
lifeguard.





Special Statement

Statement as of 10:23 PM PST on February 12, 2016

Expires 9:00 PM EST on February 13, 2016


... More record heat with elevated fire danger Sunday through
Tuesday across southwest California...

An upper level high pressure system combined with moderate
offshore flow near the surface will bring another round of
record heat with elevated fire danger Sunday through Tuesday
across southwest California. The gusty Santa Ana winds will
mostly impact Ventura and Los Angeles counties... with the
strongest winds likely Sunday night through Monday. During
this time... wind gusts between 35 and 50 mph will be common
across wind prone areas of Ventura and Los Angeles counties... with
local gusts up to 60 mph possible in favored mountain locations.

Forecasted high temperatures are expected to climb into the mid
80s to lower 90s across many portions of the coast and valleys
in Ventura and Los Angeles counties Sunday through Tuesday. The
unusual February heat wave will make sunday's Los Angeles Marathon
even more challenging with high temperatures climbing into the
mid to upper 80s by afternoon.

The unsually hot February temperatures will bring an increased
risk of heat related illnesses for the elderly and anyone
performing strenuous outdoor activities.
