A Small Craft Advisory has been issued for the coastline and outer waters as a south swell generated by Hurricane Maria impacts the outer waters.

That system is currently 1200 miles from Los Angeles but it could still bring the possibility of rip currents our way.

During these warm temperatures, it's important to remember to stay hydrated and possibly schedule events in the morning before temperatures reach their afternoon high.

Stay safe out there!
