Beachgoers are being warned about high surf, dangerous waves, and rip currents for the second day in a row. 

The National Weather Service says waves on Wednesday could get above 8 feet along beaches from Ventura County all the way south to San Diego County. 

The waves are being generated by what's left of former Hurricane Eugene, which weakened to a tropical storm and is parked off the coast of Baja California. 

Swimmers and surfers are being urged to stick close to lifeguards and not to turn their backs on the ocean. The surf advisory is scheduled through late Wednesday evening.
