Coastal Hazard Message
National Weather Service San Francisco Bay Area

...High surf will combine with high tides on Saturday morning to
result in localized coastal flooding...

.A large and long period west to northwest swell will continue to

High tides Saturday morning in combination with continued large
west to northwest swell will result in localized coastal

...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 PM PST SATURDAY...
...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM TO 10 AM PST
SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in San Francisco has issued a
Coastal Flood Advisory, which is in effect from 6 AM to 10 AM PST
Saturday.

* COASTAL FLOODING...Low-lying areas along the immediate coast,
  bay front, marshes and sloughs can experience minor flooding.
  These locations may also include parking lots, coastal trails,
  sidewalks and even roadways that are not ordinarily impacted
  by the water.

* WAVES AND SURF...A large and long period west to northwest swell
  of 14 to 17 feet will produce breaking waves of 18 to 25 feet
  along west and northwest-facing beaches.

* TIMING...WAVES AND SURF: Energetic waves will peak overnight
  tonight and into Saturday. Swell heights and periods will
  gradually diminish into Saturday night. COASTAL FLOOD: High
  tide will occur on Saturday morning, generally between 6 AM and
  10 AM PST. The exact height and timing of these tides will vary
  by location. Please visit
  https://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/ports for location specific
  tidal predictions.

* IMPACTS...Large breaking waves along the coast will lead to
  increased wave run-up on beaches with waves topping and
  washing over large rocks and jetties. They can easily move
  large logs and other beach debris and cause localized beach
  erosion. Use extreme caution near the surf zone as these large
  waves will be capable of sweeping people into the frigid and
  turbulent ocean water. Cold water shock may cause cardiac
  arrest, and it also can cause an involuntary gasp reflex
  causing drowning, even for a good swimmer. The surf zone will
  be very dangerous due to strong currents and powerful breaking
  waves.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents, localized beach
erosion and sneaker waves.

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
