Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory
Issued: 12:04 PM PST Jan. 17, 2018 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 8 PM PST Saturday...

* surf and timing... high surf of 7 to 10 feet will affect west
facing beaches through tonight, with sets up to 12 feet at
times at exposed locations such as Ventura pier. Even larger
surf is expected Thursday night into Friday when breakers of 8
to 12 feet are expected, with sets up to 15 feet possible near
Ventura Harbor.

* Impacts... large, powerful, and dangerous waves with strong
currents will create an increased risk in drownings. Sneaker
waves can suddenly wash over previously dry beaches and
jetties. There will be also a high risk of life-threatening
rip currents. Damaging breaking waves are possible near the
entrance of the Ventura Harbor. Local flooding of low lying
beach parking lots will be possible with the high surf.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions. Swim near a lifeguard. If caught
in a rip current, relax and float. Don't swim against the
current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If
unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.
