-- three degrees higher than the previous record high recorded 14 years ago.

However, San Diegans trying to beat the heat at the beaches were advised to be on the lookout for strong rip currents and elevated surf, which forecasters expect along the coast into Monday.

NWS forecasters said a long-period northwest swell would build this afternoon, bringing larger waves to the beaches south of Del Mar.

Dangerous swimming conditions could be possible. Swimmers were advised to obey warning signs and flags, speak with a lifeguard before heading into the water and to stay near lifeguards. Water temperatures were between 60 and 63, according to web sites.

Officials with the weather service said temperatures 10 to 20 degrees above average west of the mountains were caused by high pressure and offshore winds. Temperatures closer to the seasonal average are expected for the start of the work week.
