Beach Hazard Statement, High Surf Advisory:

Issued at: 10:56 PM PDT on May 5, 2015, expires at: 11:00 AM PDT on May 07, 2015
  • ...High surf advisory in effect from 10 am Wednesday to 11 am PDT Thursday... ...Beach hazards statement will expire at 11 PM PDT this evening... The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a high surf advisory for the beaches along the central coast. This advisory is in effect from 10 am Wednesday to 11 am PDT Thursday.
  • Surf...surf will build to 8 to 10 feet with local sets to 12 feet on Wednesday and linger into Thursday morning.
  • Timing...a building northwest swell will bring large surf and strong rip currents to the beaches of the central coast Wednesday and linger into Thursday morning.
  • Impacts...the large surf and powerful rip currents will produce extremely dangerous swimming conditions. People standing too close to the waves can be swept off their feet and injured. Large waves can sweep people off of jetties and waves may wash over sea walls. Beach erosion is expected at times of high tide. Long shore currents commonly occur when waves approach the shoreline at an angle. They can be particularly dangerous near a jetty or pier. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area...producing rip currents and localized beach erosion. Remember...if caught in a rip current...swim parallel to shore until you are free of the powerful current. Always swim near a lifeguard.

Special Statement:

Issued at: 9:41 PM PDT on May 5, 2015, expires at: 9:45 PM PDT on May 06, 2015
  • ...Unseasonably cold storm system will bring threat of showers and thunderstorms to southwest California Thursday into Friday... An unseasonably cold storm system originating in British Columbia will dive southward into California Wednesday night through Friday. A slight chance of showers will develop across southwest California late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. As the main low pressure system draws closer to the region...there will be an increased threat of showers from Thursday afternoon through Friday morning. During this time...there will also be a slight chance of thunderstorms capable of producing brief heavy downpours and hail. There is the possibility that the Los Angeles Metro area could be impacted by showers and hail during the Thursday evening and Friday morning commute. In addition...conditions will be favorable for isolated waterspouts across the coastal waters. Another potential impact from this storm system will be unseasonably low snow levels. Snow levels could fall to around 5000 feet late Thursday into Thursday night...and possibly lower in heavier convective showers. A few inches of snow will be possible at resort levels...which may require the issuance of a Winter Weather Advisory as we draw closer to the event. In addition...gusty southwest winds up to 50 mph will likely accompany this storm in the mountains and Antelope Valley. Rainfall amounts with this system will be quite variable due to the showery nature of the system. Isolated rainfall rates up to one half inch per hour will be possible with thunderstorms. As a result...if a thunderstorm were to move over a recent burn area...there is the possibility of minor mud and debris flows. Residents of southwest California should monitor the latest National Weather Service products for this developing weather situation. Anyone planning to travel to the local mountain should prepare for the possibility of snow showers and gusty winds.
