SAN DIEGO — Higher than average surf was expected to begin building at the beaches south of Del Mar Saturday and stick around into early next week.

A National Weather Service high surf advisory was scheduled for 6 a.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Forecasters said the waves and surf would peak at 6 to 8 feet with sets to 10 feet on Monday at west-facing beaches south of Del Mar.

The waves and surf may produce rip currents that could lead to dangerous swimming conditions, especially for those with little experience in the water. Localized beach erosion could also occur, the NWS said.
