A high-surf advisory was in effect for Los Angeles County through noon Sunday, Jan. 13, as rain fell throughout Southern California on Saturday. The advisory also applied to Catalina and the Santa Barbara islands.
Also, chain controls were in effect in mountain areas because of heavy snow.
Breaking waves of 7 to 10 feet were forecast, with the largest waves expected on exposed west-facing beaches, the National Weather Service said. The high waves can wash people off beaches and rocks, and rip currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Small boats are at risk of capsizing.
