Sunny weather today with big waves and strong rip currents along the coast


It will be mostly sunny throughout the county today once the fog lifts.

Big waves and strong rip currents are expected along the San Diego coatline today thanks to several storms in the northwest Pacific Ocean. According to the National Weather Service, beaches that will be most affected are those from Encinitas to the mouth of the Tijuana River.

A high surf advisory is in effect in the region until 2 a.m. Saturday morning. Waves are expected to measure 5-to-7 feet during the advisory period, with sets of up to 9 feet.

Highs today will be 63 to 68 degrees along the coast, 67 to 72 in the valleys, 54 to 64 in the mountains and 69 to 74 in the deserts.
