• Labor Day Weather


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Perilous conditions marked by high surf and powerful rip currents will prevail along the Southland coast from today through the weekend, National Weather Service forecasters said.

    “A building southerly swell will bring high surf to area beaches beginning Friday morning through Sunday afternoon, with the largest surf peaking Friday night into Saturday afternoon,” according to an NWS advisory. “Breakers of between 6 and 8 feet will occur along exposed south- and southwest-facing beaches, especially around Zuma Beach, Point Dume and portions of Malibu, with local sets to 10 feet possible.”

    A high tide of around 5.3 feet is expected at 10 a.m., NWS forecasters said.

    The large swell behind the high surf results from wave energy generated by a storm in the South Pacific and Tropical Storm Ileana off the Mexican coast, they said, warning that minor beach erosion and some coastal flooding is possible around times of high tide.

    A high surf advisory issued by the weather service will be in effect from 6 a.m. today until 6 p.m. Sunday along the Los Angeles County coast but expire only 24  hours later in Orange County, where 5-foot surf with occasional 9-foot sets was expected today, rising to 6 feet with 12-foot sets Saturday.

    Along with high surf, the Labor Day weekend was expected to bring seasonably warm temperatures and a combination of sunny and partly cloudy skies.

    The NWS forecast highs today of 70 at LAX; 77 in Avalon; 79 in Newport Beach; 82 on Mount Wilson; 86 in Long Beach; 89 in downtown L.A.; 91 in Burbank; 92 in San Gabriel; 95 in Pasadena and Saugus; 96 in Woodland Hills; 97 in Palmdale; and 98 in Lancaster. Temperatures are expected to remain at the same level through much of the coming week.
