The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for the Point Reyes National Seashore from 3 pm today through 9 pm tomorrow.

The largest waves will begin to move into the surf zone later this afternoon. In particular, west facing beaches such as McClures Beach, Kehoe Beach, Point Reyes Beach North, and Point Reyes Beach South could be affected by this dangerous wave activity.

These large waves can be erratic and unpredictable so use caution near the surf zone since these waves can sweep people into the cold and rough sea. There may also be strong rip currents associated with these waves.

Be sure to always have your eyes on the ocean.
