.a large and long period swell will result in high surf along the
coastline through today. combined seas of 15 feet or higher are
san francisco-
coastal north bay...including point reyes national seashore-
san francisco peninsula coast-northern monterey bay-
southern monterey bay and big sur coast-
406 am pst sun jan 25 2015
...high surf advisory remains in effect until 3 pm pst this
* waves and surf...10 to 12 feet at 15 to 18 seconds. combined
seas over 15 feet are possible.
* timing...through this afternoon.
* locations...from the sonoma coastline south through the big
sur coastline.
* impacts... localized beach erosion. large breaking waves along
the coast will lead to increased wave run-up on beaches with
waves topping and washing over large rocks and jetties. these
large waves can be erratic and unpredictable. use extra
caution near the surf zone as these large waves will be
capable of sweeping people into the frigid and turbulent
precautionary/preparedness actions...
remember that high surf is often associated with riptides...and
can be powerful enough to snap a surfboard in half. if you are
caught in a riptide do not swim against it. instead...swim
parallel to shore until you are free of the powerful current.
