A high surf advisory went into effect at 6 a.m. this morning for Orange and Los Angeles Counties.
The advisory will remain in force until 10 a.m. Sunday in L.A. County and until 1 p.m. Monday in Orange County.
Sets of up to 12 feet are possible.
The high surf results from a huge swell being generated by two storms -- one in the north-central Pacific, the other in the eastern Pacific.
The waves are causing dangerous rip currents along the coast.
Speaking of storms, we're being doused by light rain this morning as a result of the first of four successive storms expected this week.
The storm behind today's rains arrived yesterday. Another is expected tomorrow, then a third on Saturday, followed by a fourth and final system on Sunday.
Between now and Sunday night, the storms are expected to produce between a quarter and three-quarters of an inch of rain in coastal and valley areas, and between three-quarters of an inch and an inch-and-a-half in the foothills and mountains.
The snow level will remain above 8-thousand feet.
