Crews were building up the berm near beach homes early Monday because a high-surf advisory will be in effect until noon in L.A County and 5  p.m. in Orange County. Ocean water spilled onto streets in Seal Beach Sunday, only reaching as high as curbing near 14th Street.

The surf peaked Sunday night. After high tide at 6:30 a.m. Monday, the surf was expected to diminish.

Sets might reach 12 feet in LA County and 10 feet in Orange County.

Moderate west-northwest winds are expected to pick up later Monday morning. Gusts might reach 60 mph in inland areas.

Expect high temperatures in the high-70s.

"It will feel more like spring today and tomorrow," said NBC4 forecaster Elita Loresca.
