Big waves are expected to roll in this afternoon, followed by a storm Thursday that could bring more than an inch of rain.

The Santa Anas make a return today, with downtown temperatures in the 80s, large ocean surf -- with possible 15-foot breakers expected through Wednesday -- and heavy rain forecast to arrive Thursday night.

The potentially wild weather brought back fire danger concerns. The National Weather Service this morning issued a red flag warning for Los Angeles and Santa Barbara area mountains, the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, Santa Clarita Valley and Ventura County into Wednesday morning.

The Coast Guard has issued a warning for recreational boaters to stay in port through Thursday. They also put large vessels in the Port of Los Angeles on standby, in case large waves rock the ships and they have to be moved, said Lt. Andrew Munoz, a Coast Guard spokesman.
