Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 2:23 PM PST Dec. 13, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Thursday
evening...

* timing... the highest sneaker wave risk will be this afternoon
and evening and again during the daytime on Thursday.

* Impacts... larger surf at offshore breaks and an enhanced risk
of sneaker waves on northwest California beaches. Steep
beaches will have a higher risk of sneaker wave activity with
greater wave run-up onto beaches. Large waves will also wash
over jetties and rock outcroppings that may normally stay dry.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water. Never turn your back to
the ocean!
