SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A high surf advisory has been issued for San Diego beaches, as big waves are crashing on the shorelines.
The waves are almost as high as the pier in Ocean Beach. And beaches from La Jolla southward will receive the highest of the swell energy, with occasional eight foot sets likely through this evening, according to the National Weather Service.
Strong rip currents are also expected, which can be dangerous for swimmers and surfers.
The National Weather Service says the advisory will run through 10 p.m. Monday.

Meanwhile, a Pacific storm that brought rain and snow showers to the San Diego County area late Sunday into Monday is moving out. According to the NWS, most of the wet weather was expected to clear around 4:00 a.m. Monday. However the snow level will remain around 4,000 feet, with additional snowfall of two inches or less above 5,000 feet and light accumulation below that.
A NWS advisory also notes that motorists should drive very cautiously in the mountains Monday morning due to likely slick spots on roadways and reduced visibility.
