Surf advisory in effect for San Diego until late Friday

SAN DIEGO - Big waves continued to pound San Diego County's southernmost beaches early Friday, but the high surf was expected to ease up later, according to the National Weather Service.

The agency issued a high surf advisory for beaches until 10 a.m. During the advisory period, 5- to 8-foot waves were spotted.

"A large west northwest swell continues to generate high surf along the exposed west-facing beaches of southern San Diego County, from Cardiff southward through this morning," according to an NWS advisory. "Surf heights will diminish this afternoon and tonight, then build again Saturday afternoon into Sunday."

The Weather Service cautioned beach users, along with coastal residents and merchants, to watch out for flooding and dangerous rip currents.

Elsewhere in the county, patchy frost was found this morning. According to the NWS, frost conditions in wind-sheltered inland valley locations were found early Friday and were likely to occur again tonight into early Saturday.

Also, "a trough of low pressure will bring a chance of light precipitation over and west of the mountains Saturday afternoon through Sunday," according to an NWS advisory.
