A high surf advisory remains in effect until 9 am Friday for west to northwest facing beaches along the Central Coast north of Point Conception to the Monterey County border.
Surf between 8 and 12 feet will impact mainly west and northwest beaches through Friday morning. There could be a few sets to 14 feet peaking Thursday morning.
A high tide of 5.6 feet is expected around 745 am Thursday morning. Another high tide of 5.7 feet will occur on Friday around 815 am.
Dangerous rip currents on all beaches... posing a threat to all swimmers. In addition sneaker waves can inundate beaches and overtop jetties posing a threat to people on shore but near the water. Beach erosion due to the energy created from high surf and long period swells.
If caught in a rip current... do not try to swim against the current. Swim across the current until away from the strong flow and then swim to shore. Always swim near a lifeguard if possible. Stay out of the water if not a strong swimmer. Do not climb across jetties and never turn your back to the ocean as sneaker waves could knock you into the water.
