Beach Hazard Statement:
Issued at: 3:07 PM PDT on March 28, 2015, expires at: 4:00 PM PDT on March 29, 2015
- ...Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Sunday afternoon...
- hazards and timing...mixed locally northwest swell and southwest swell will persist through the weekend. Surf will build through tonight and range from 6 to 8 feet along exposed west facing shores through Sunday. Frequent strong rip currents and strong long-shore currents are likely this weekend.
- Tides...the lower high tide is expected to occur each evening with the higher high tide occurring each early morning through Sunday.
- Impacts...elevated surf will bring strong rip currents and long-shore currents to area beaches...along with a risk of sneaker waves. Long period swell also causes more powerful surf and a potential for minor beach erosion during times of high tide. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A beach hazards statement is issued when threats to beach and surf zone safety are expected or occurring. Caution should be used when in or near the water. Stay near occupied lifeguard towers and never swim alone. If caught in a rip current...swim parallel to the shore.
