High Surf Warning, First of Four Storms Hit Orange County

A high surf advisory is an effect from 6 a.m. Thursday to 1 p.m. Monday in Seal Beach and other coastal communities.

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.
