High surf, coastal flooding are forecast for Southern California beaches
A storm system in the South Pacific Ocean is causing the high tide, which will combine with rip currents to produce hazardous conditions at some beaches, officials said.
The weather service warned that some coastal flooding and beach erosion in places such as Malibu, Pacific Palisades and Sunset Beach were possible.
The high-surf warning lasts through Thursday. The biggest waves -- from 6 to 10 feet -- will hit south-facing beaches.
