High Surf Advisory, Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:08 AM PST on December 20, 2014

Expires 9:14 PM EST on December 23, 2014


... High surf advisory remains in effect until 10 PM PST this
evening...

* waves and surf: large swells will produce breaking waves around
of 20 feet in the surf zone through this evening.

* Timing and areas affected: large breakers will affect all
coastal areas through this evening. However... south gales are
likely to worsen breaking wave impacts at and around the time of
high tide at south through west facing portions of the coastline
around noon today.

* Impacts: large surf will make beaches and jetties very
dangerous. Waves of this magnitude can easily sweep people
from jetties into the cold ocean water. Even if waves do not
appear to be dangerous... large sets can arrive suddenly. Do
not go out on jetties and use extreme caution at beaches...
especially around the time of high tide. Do not turn your back
on the ocean.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.
