...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 4 AM PST TUESDAY...
* SURF AND TIMING...Surf will build to 8 to 10 feet this morning,
and will peak at 10 to 13 feet this afternoon. The surf will
then slowly diminish through early Tuesday. There is a chance
that high surf may linger through early afternoon Tuesday.
* IMPACTS...There is an increased risk of ocean drowning. Rip
currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large
breaking waves can cause injury...wash people off beaches and
rocks...and capsize small boats near shore.
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.
