Weather service warning: rip currents, high surf Thursday through Sunday in La Jolla

Long-period south-southwest swells will produce dangerous rip currents and high surf in the North County and from La Jolla to Point Loma Thursday through the weekend, a National Weather Service meteorologist said.

The highest surf and strongest rip currents will occur late Thursday, July 18, through Sunday, July 21, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), which said 3 to 6-foot surf, with local sets up to 8 feet, was likely.

The agency also warned high tides will rise above 7 feet during the evenings from Saturday through Tuesday.

“The high tides will combine with the continuing south-southwest swells to possibly bring minor tidal overflow to south and southwest-facing beaches, mainly for Saturday and Sunday evenings,” the NWS said in a beach hazards statement.
