    Big Waves Headed To Nor Cal




    Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore-
    San Francisco Peninsula Coast-Northern Monterey Bay-
    Southern Monterey Bay and Big Sur Coast-
    259 AM PST Wed Dec 11 2019

    ...HIGH SURF ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM THURSDAY TO 3 AM PST
    SATURDAY...

    * WAVES AND SURF...Northwest swells 12 to 14 feet at 17 to 18
    second periods. Breakers of 16 to 22 feet possible.

    * TIMING...Thursday night through early Saturday morning.

    * IMPACTS...Large breaking waves along the coast will lead to
    increased wave run-up on beaches with waves topping and washing
    over large rocks and jetties. Use extra caution near the surf
    zone as these large waves will be capable of sweeping people
    into the frigid and turbulent ocean water. Cold water shock may
    cause cardiac arrest, and it also can cause an involuntary gasp
    reflex causing drowning, even for a good swimmer. Long periods
    increases the risk of rip currents. The surf zone will be
    dangerous due to strong currents and powerful breaking waves.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
    the advisory area, producing rip currents, localized beach
    erosion and sneaker waves.
