High Surf Advisory
Statement as of 3:14 am PST on February 13, 2016

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 8 PM PST this
evening...

* locations... these conditions are expected along the entire coast
from Sonoma County to Monterey County. Locations such as Pillar
Point near Half Moon Bay... the San Francisco bar and Carmel
Point will see excessively large breaking waves occasionally
reaching 20 feet in height.

* Waves and surf... a long period swell has moved into the coastal
waters with swell heights 11 to 12 feet with a period of 16 to
17 seconds. Expect occasional sets upwards of 20 feet.

* Timing... this large swell is anticipated to persist through this
evening.

* Impacts... this energetic swell will result in large surf with
long lulls between sets... raising the risk of people being
washed into the ocean by a wave. Also there is a risk of
strong rip currents... sneaker waves... and large shore break.
Those visiting area beaches may be unfamiliar with the deadly
force of the Pacific Ocean. For those visiting regional
beaches... remain vigilant and do not turn your back to the
ocean.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing a heightened risk of sneaker
waves... strong rip currents and localized beach erosion. When
visiting the beach please keep an eye on the water
