Waves as high as  10-13 feet along the coast north of Los Angles will diminish Saturday, but even bigger surf is headed to the Southland beginning Sunday night.

Another storm originating in the Gulf of Alaska will likely produce 7-10 foot surf across west facing beaches of Los Angeles beginning late Sunday and lasting through Tuesday.

The National Weather Service forecast for central Los Angeles on Saturday calls for sun with highs in the 70s and winds of 15 to 25 mph. It will be mostly clear Saturday night with lows from the upper 40s to mid 50s.

On Sunday in Los Angeles it will turn partly cloudy with highs in the 70s.

A high surf advisory remains in effect for coastal Orange County through 4 p.m. Saturday. It will be mostly sunny in the area with highs around 75 and light winds. Saturday night will be mostly clear with lows 44 to 49. Sunday will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 70s.

The weather service said the high surf conditions will produce dangerous rip currents, minor beach erosion, and sneaker waves that can inundate beaches and crash over jetties and rock walls.

Inexperienced swimmers and surfers should stay out of the water. Also, stay off of rock walls and jetties and never turn your back on the ocean.
