A high surf advisory is in effect through Saturday, January 20 with waves between six and nine feet and sets up to 13 feet along with dangerous rip currents.

Waves will begin to lower Wednesday into Thursday and higher swells will be possible Friday as the next storm approaches, according to Meteorologist Angelica Campos

There's no word yet on when the Pier will be reopened. 

At this time rescue officials are also warning the public to remain off cliffs throughout the county. Areas like Sunset Cliffs Park will also see the large waves, making it dangerous for those who may be visiting and hiking along the edges of the cliffs. 

On Friday temperatures are expected to plummet as a storm passes through Southern California.
