SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Big waves crashed along San Diego County beaches Thursday, and the biggest of them all were spotted south of Cardiff, forecasters said.
The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory for local beaches from late Wednesday to 2 p.m. Friday. During the advisory period, 5- to 8-foot waves -- with occasional sets to 9 feet -- were likely on west-facing beaches, mainly from Cardiff southward, the agency advised.
"Waves may be breaking over jetties, against the bottom of the Ocean Beach pier and slamming into the base of the Cliffs during (today's) morning hours," according to an NWS advisory. "Minor beach erosion and coastal flooding are possible. Very dangerous rip currents are likely."
The Weather Service also cautioned residents of the valleys and lower deserts that frost was possible tonight and again Friday night, with nighttime lows dropping into the 30s in those parts. Otherwise, mostly sunny skies and light winds were expected throughout the day today, according to the agency.
Daytime highs Thursday were expected to be in the high 50s to low 60s in coastal areas and in the western valleys, the high 40s to low 50s near the foothills, the high 30s to high 40s in the mountains and the low to mid-60s in the deserts.
