High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 1:15 AM PDT on October 19, 2017

Expires 3:00 PM EDT on October 22, 2017


... High surf advisory remains in effect from 6 am Friday to noon
PDT Sunday...

... Beach hazards statement is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a
high surf advisory, which is in effect from 6 am Friday to noon
PDT Sunday. The beach hazards statement has been cancelled.

* Surf... high surf 14 to 20 feet is expected to develop by
Friday morning and continue through Sunday morning along
northwest and west facing beaches. A strong storm in the Gulf
of Alaska was generating large swells with a long period.
These large swells will move into the coastal waters north of
Point Conception bringing a sudden increase in the large surf.
Surf will increase from 10 to 14 feet to 14 to 20 feet by late
Friday evening and persist into Saturday morning. The surf is
expected to diminish some by Saturday afternoon into Sunday
morning but remaining above 10 feet through the period.

* Locations... northwest and west facing beaches across the
central coast.

* Impacts... large powerful and damaging waves and strong
currents will create a risk of ocean drowning. Sneaker waves
can suddenly overrun previously dry beaches and jetties.
Flooding of low lying beach parking lots, Harbor walkways, and
campgrounds will be possible with the high surf. A coastal
flood advisory could be added by later shifts for Friday night
through Saturday morning.

* Tides... high tides will be moderately high around 5.7 ft at
9:45 am PDT Friday and about the same tide height on Saturday
around 10:10 am PDT.

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.
