Swimming hazard warning issued as high tide hits San Diego County beaches – NBC San Diego

A swimming hazard warning has been issued at San Diego County beaches from early Sunday until Monday morning, forecasters said Saturday.
The warning will be in effect from 5 a.m. Sunday until 10 a.m. Monday, with potential high tides of over 6 feet accompanied by minor tidal overflow due to elevated surf of 3 to 5 feet on west-facing beaches, according to the National Weather Service.
The NWS urged the public to avoid water contact until the warning is lifted. Minor flooding of low-lying beach parking lots and boardwalks was also expected.
Forecasters said no hazardous marine conditions are expected through at least Wednesday.

Sunday’s San Diego surf forecast includes a high-risk rip current, with surf height from 3 to 5 feet, a mixed south swell from 210 degrees and a west swell from 290 degrees.
Sunday and Monday’s conditions for the downtown San Diego area are expected to be mostly sunny, with highs reaching about 70 degrees.

Winds will peak Sunday morning, then weaken through Monday, allowing marine air to return to coastal areas. It will be a bit warmer through Tuesday as a storm system forms and approaches the California coast, according to the National Weather Service
Local gusts of wind reached over 50 mph Saturday and Sunday due to northeast Santa Ana winds, according to the NWS.

Sunday will be a cool day over the mountain areas, including weak Santa Ana wind gust of 20-25 mph, according to NBC 7 meteorologist Greg Bledsoe.
Saturday night was chilly in San Diego and those lower-than average temperatures will continue into Sunday night, Bledsoe said.
“We could see some of our mountain areas get near the freezing mark,” Bledsoe said.
Sunday temperatures:
It will be rather chilly tonight with lows locally in the 30s in a few low-lying wind-sheltered areas west of the mountains. Most other coastal and valley areas will be in the 40s. Overall, the lows will be about 5° below seasonal normals. #CAwx pic.twitter.com/Z8xpybs0QS
Sunday afternoon will be dry and breezy, Bledsoe added.
As the week continues, the Santa Ana winds will fade, making way for a chance of rain, according to Bledsoe. As with every forecast, conditions could quickly change and NBC 7’s First Alert Forecast team will be watching.
Temperatures will drop again towards the end of this week, Bledsoe added.
Along the coast, partly cloudy conditions are expected through Friday, with daytime temperatures hitting the high 60s to low 70s. Inland valley areas are expected to be partly cloudy through Friday, with highs reaching the low 70s.
San Diego County desert areas are expected to see highs in the lower 70s throughout the week, with daytime temperatures ranging from the high 50s to mid-60s in the mountains.
