SAN DIEGO -- Lifeguards closed the Ocean Beach pier Tuesday afternoon due to high surf, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department said.

The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory, which will be in effect from 4 p.m. tomorrow to 4 a.m. Saturday. The highest
surf will be at west-northwest facing beaches in San Diego County, according to the NWS.

“We will see some high surf in the 8- to 10-foot range,” said NWS forecaster Casey Oswant. “Surf will be down to about 4 to 6 feet by the weekend.”

Earlier this month, a 20-foot section of the pier was repaired after being damaged by pounding surf.
