Hazardous Surf

The National Weather Service report for this morning has issued a high surf advisory which is in effect from 3 p.m. PST this afternoon to 3 a.m. PST Tuesday, February 14.

These conditions will result in strong rip currents and possible sneaker waves. Steeper beaches, particularly northwest facing beaches, will see large breaking waves.

Large northwesterly swells, locally in the 12 to 14 foot range, will create a dangerous near shore environment. These conditions will result in strong rip currents and sneaker waves. Use extreme caution along the shoreline. Breakers could reach up to 17 feet.
