Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory
Issued: 2:48 PM PST Dec. 13, 2019 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 3 am PST Saturday...

* waves and surf... northwest swells 12 to 14 feet at 16 to 17
second periods. Breakers of 16 to 22 feet possible.

* Timing... through early Saturday morning.

* Impacts... 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. Use extra caution near
the surf zone as these large waves will be capable of sweeping
people into the frigid and turbulent ocean water. Cold water
shock may cause cardiac arrest, and it also can cause an
involuntary gasp reflex causing drowning, even for a good
swimmer. Long periods increases the risk of rip currents. The
surf zone will be dangerous due to strong currents and
powerful breaking waves.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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