High surf generated by a long-period swell pounded the Southern California coast Monday.

As the swell builds, high surf was expected along southwest- and west- facing beaches, along with powerful rip currents, long-shore currents, sneaker waves and minor beach erosion, said the National Weather Service.

A high surf advisory will be in effect along the Los Angeles and San Diego coasts — as well as in neighboring counties — until 4 p.m. Tuesday.

In both L.A. and Orange counties, surf of 5 to 8 feet is expected, along with some sets of 10 feet, NWS forecasters said.
