... High surf advisory in effect from 2 PM Friday to 6 PM PST

The National Weather Service in Eureka has issued a high surf
advisory... which is in effect from 2 PM Friday to 6 PM PST

* Waves and surf... breaking waves 22 to 25 feet along west and
northwest facing beaches.

* Timing... surf rapidly building Friday afternoon into Friday
night. Large surf will continue through Saturday.

* 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. These large waves can be erratic
and unpredictable. Use extra caution near the surf zone as these
large waves will be capable of sweeping people into the frigid
and turbulent ocean waters. Mariners traversing The Bar are
urged to exercise extreme caution especially during Max Ebb
which is predicted to occur around 1 PM... or stay in port until
the threat subsides.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...
