...AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF HIGH SURF WILL AFFECT WEST AND NORTHWEST
FACING BEACHES THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING...

...DAMAGING WARNING LEVEL SURF LIKELY FOR THE CENTRAL COAST
BEGINNING THURSDAY AFTERNOON...

.Strong storms in the Gulf of Alaska have created a series of
long period west-northwest swells that will move through the
Southwestern California Coastal Waters this week. The large
swells will bring an extended period of high surf to area beaches
through Saturday evening. The largest and most energetic swell is
expected to arrive to the Central Coast by Thursday afternoon,
likely bringing damaging warning level surf of 20 feet or
greater.

  afternoon into Friday. During this time, breakers of 15 to 20
  feet will be common with local sets to 25 feet possible.

* Impacts...Large, powerful, and dangerous waves with strong
  currents will create an increased risk in drownings. Sneaker
  waves can suddenly wash over previously dry beaches and
  jetties. There will be also a high risk of life-threatening
  rip currents. From Thursday afternoon into Friday, there is an
  increased threat of damaging surf and beach erosion, with
  breaking waves into the Morro Bay Harbor, and local flooding
  of low lying beach parking lots.

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.

A High Surf Warning indicates that dangerous, battering waves
will pound the shoreline. This will result in life-threatening
conditions.
