...HIGH SURF WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON THURSDAY TO 8 PM
PST SATURDAY...

* SURF AND TIMING...High surf of between 10 and 16 feet will

and potentially damaging surf is expected to peak Thursday
afternoon into Friday. During this time, breakers of 15 to 20

* Impacts...Large, powerful, and dangerous waves with strong
currents will create an increased risk in drownings. Sneaker

jetties. There will be also a high risk of life-threatening
rip currents. From Thursday afternoon into Friday, there is an
increased threat of damaging surf and beach erosion, with
breaking waves into the Morro Bay Harbor, and local flooding
of low lying beach parking lots.

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.

A High Surf Warning indicates that dangerous, battering waves
will pound the shoreline. This will result in life-threatening
conditions.
