...long period swell brings threat of sneaker waves sunday

.a long period swell arriving sunday morning, along with fair
weather and light morning winds, will bring a moderate risk of
sneaker waves to north bay and bay area coastal beaches. arrival
of the long period swell will coincide with a rapidly rising tide
on sunday morning, pushing more energy up the beach. west and
northwest facing and steep sloped beaches will be at greatest
risk. the threat is expected to abate in the afternoon as the
tide drops, onshore winds develop, and long period waves
transition to shorter periods.
