SAN DIEGO (CNS) - High surf accompanied by dangerous rip currents pounded the San Diego County coastline Monday.

The elevated surf and dangerous rip currents are due to a long period swell generated by a storm off the coast of Japan, according to the National Weather Service. The high surf will persist through this afternoon, then slowly dissipate late Monday night into Tuesday.

The weather service estimated surf heights Monday would be 3 to 5 feet with local sets of 7 feet south of Cardiff.
