According to the National Weather Service, the next storm system will  bring the potential for periods of heavy rain, significant snow in the  mountains and strong winds. In addition, there's a chance of waterspouts,  isolated small tornados and thunderstorms, with heavy downpours, hail, strong  winds and lightning.

The Weather Service also advised that a strong low pressure system in  the Eastern Pacific has generated a large west-northwest swell that reached  coastal waters this morning.

"Most of the swell energy will be focused north of Point Conception,  but some swell energy will impact the coastal areas of Ventura and Los Angeles  counties," according to the NWS.

Surfers won't have far to go for a Zen moment Thursday.

The Weather Service put out a high-surf advisory for LA and Ventura county. In Ventura, 10-foot sets are possible.

Higher than normal surf of 4 to 6 feet, with local sets of 7 feet, is expected across Los Angeles County through Thursday night. The highest waves  are expected across west-facing beaches, from Santa Monica southward to Palos  Verdes.
