... Beach hazards statement in effect through Monday evening...

The National Weather Service in San Francisco has issued a beach
hazards statement for rip currents and cold water temperatures... which
is in effect through Monday evening.

* Hazards... rip currents which could be strong at times and cold
water temperatures which could lead quickly to hypothermia.

* Timing... through the weekend.

* Location... the entire coast from Sonoma County south along the
Big Sur coast.

* Potential impacts... rip currents can pull even the best swimmer
away from the beach and out to sea. Cold water temperatures can
quickly result in hypothermia.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazard statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
Rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties... inlets... and piers. Swimmers caught in a rip
current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. Swimmers should always
swim near a lifeguard.
