A high surf advisory for the beaches along the Southern California coast will remain in effect until Tuesday evening, the National Weather Service announced.

The high surf advisory will last until 9 p.m. Tuesday. Forecasters said they expect wave heights to reach 6-8 feet, especially along south-facing beaches in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

A high tide of more than 6 feet is expected Tuesday evening, which could cause some minor coastal flooding in low-lying areas, such as Long Beach and Seal Beach.

Rip currents will also pose a danger to swimmers.

The large waves are a result of Tropical Storm Simon, which is moving through the Pacific Ocean towards the Baja Peninsula in Mexico.
