Monster high surf headed for L.A. over weekend
LOS ANGELES, CA – – A strong weather system moving down from Alaska is expected to hit the California coast this weekend.

The system is generating a large west swell that is predicted to bring monster waves and dangerous rip currents from the Bay Area to San Diego.

The surf will peak in Southern California on Sunday with waves reaching 7 to 12 feet along west-facing beaches like El Porto in Manhattan Beach.

The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for Saturday for San Francisco, southern Monterey Bay, and Big Sur.

Winds up to 25 mph could whip up even stronger waves.

The system should lose most of its strength by Monday.
