WEATHER UPDATE: August 22, 2014 (8:52 a.m.)

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - More rip currents and elevated surf are expected along the San Diego County coastline Friday and throughout the weekend, forecasters said.

A swell out of the south that is expected to move through the coastal waters through Sunday prompted the National Weather Service to issue a beach hazards statement, which is set to remain in effect until Sunday afternoon.

"This swell will generate elevated surf along San Diego beaches, and high surf along Orange County beaches through the weekend, with isolated sets to 7- to 8-feet possible on southerly facing beaches," according to the weather service statement. "Strong and dangerous rip currents are likely through the period."

Forecasters said 3- to 5-foot surf with isolated sets of up to 7 feet would be possible along San Diego County beaches.

The currents could result in dangerous swimming conditions, especially for those with little experience in the water, 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.
