LOS ANGELES - Light rain doused the Southland today and high surf began pounding the coastline.

The region will experience wet weather through Sunday because of a series of Pacific storms, National Weather Service forecasters said.

A high surf advisory will be in effect from 6 this morning until 10 p.m.

Sunday in Los Angeles County and until 1 p.m. Monday in Orange County, where sets of up to 12 feet are possible, forecasters said.

The surf results from a huge swell being generated by two storms - one in the north-central Pacific, the other in the eastern Pacific. The strongest surf will be Friday and Saturday, according to the NWS.

"Surf and swell conditions will be hazardous to anyone entering the water from very early Thursday morning through this weekend, with dangerous rip current expected," an NWS advisory said. "Minor beach erosion and localized flooding of low-lying areas may also occur..."

The snow level, meanwhile, will remain high - above 8,000 feet.
