A high surf advisory lasted until 9 p.m. Sunday for the Malibu coast and Los Angeles County beaches, warning of waves reaching 4 to 8 feet and dangerous rip currents.

Transition to Dry and Warmer Weather:

The weekend’s storm system was anticipated to be followed by dry and warmer weather, with daytime temperatures expected to rise quickly into the 70s.
