Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 10:44 PM PDT Oct. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

* seas... a northwesterly swell of 12 to 15 ft at 15 to 17
seconds will continue to create hazardous beach conditions.
Breaking waves may reach up to 20 feet at favored locations.

* Timing... through Saturday evening. Waves already peaked earlier
Friday and will continue to gradually diminish into Saturday.
Waves will generally be 12 to 15 feet, occasionally reaching up
to 20 feet at favored locations.

* Location... coastline from Sonoma County south through Monterey
County. In particular west to northwest facing beaches,
including but not limited to Ocean Beach, Montara State Beach,
and Marina state beach.

* Potential impacts... increased risk of rip currents, sneaker
waves, and locally large surf break. Beachgoers may be knocked
over, injured, or pulled out to sea into the cold, restless
ocean.

A beach hazard statement means the potentially dangerous
conditions may exist on specific beaches. These hazards may
include large shore break, strong rip currents, strong longshore
currents and possibly sneaker waves. All of which could be life-
threatening. Be sure to always keep your eyes on the ocean.
