Sadly, there is a dead whale that washed up onshore in Del Mar. Already the gulls are trying to find a way to get to it. - George the Killdeer (@killdeergeorge) December 11, 2015
Otherwise, a coastal flood advisory has been issued until noon Sunday, but a high surf warning will remain in effect all weekend.
Be careful out there, San Diego.
