High Surf, Excessive Heat Warnings in Place for Malibu

National Weather Service

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued two warnings for the Los Angeles/Oxnard areas this week. A high surf advisory is in place from July 4 at 8 p.m. to July 6 at 8 p.m. An excessive heat watch is in place from July 6 at 11 a.m. to July 8 at 12 a.m.

Weekend temperatures in Malibu will hit highs in the 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit range, according to NWS predictions. Cities in nearby valleys can expect temperatures ranging from 105-112 degrees Fahrenheit.

NWS warns that the potential for heat-related illness will be increased. The excessive heat watch states, “Temperatures inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can quickly rise to life-threatening levels.”

The surf advisory is due to “a large southerly swell” from Hurricane Fabio. Anyone looking to head to local beaches is cautioned to look out for large surf, sneaker waves and rip currents.
