Temperatures will hit the 90s again during an autumn heat wave that has already set or tied Southern California weather records.

The National Weather Service says Tuesday's 93-degree high at Long Beach Airport broke the previous record of 91 set in 1996. The Los Angeles neighborhood of Woodland Hills tied a 2014 record with a high of 94.

Wednesday's forecast highs are 92 in downtown Los Angeles and 93 in Pasadena.

The heat event is accompanied by pounding waves, leading officials to issue a high surf advisory for several Southern California beaches. West and northwest-facing beaches could see surf between 12 and 18 feet.

Forecasters warn of dangerous rip currents and sneaker waves.
