Coastal Hazard Message National Weather Service Eureka CA 1034 AM PST Sat Dec 15 2018 .Very large, long period westerly swell will cause surf to rapidly increase in height late Sunday morning through Sunday evening along the Northwest California coast. CAZ101-103-104-109-161130- /O.CON.KEKA.SU.W.0002.181216T1700Z-181218T0500Z/ Coastal Del Norte-Northern Humboldt Coast-Southwestern Humboldt- Mendocino Coast- 1034 AM PST Sat Dec 15 2018 …HIGH SURF WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 9 AM SUNDAY TO 9 PM PST MONDAY… * WAVES AND SURF…Breaking waves rapidly building to around 30 feet along the Northwest California coast during the latter half of the weekend. The highest surf will be along west and northwest facing beaches. * TIMING…Building surf late Sunday morning through Sunday evening with high surf continuing into Monday. * 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 water. Mariners traversing the bar are urged to exercise extreme caution especially during max ebb which is predicted to occur around 900 PM Sunday and 1000 AM Monday, or stay in port until the threat subsides. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS… A High Surf Warning indicates that dangerous, battering wave will pound the shoreline. This will result in very dangerous swimming conditions and deadly rip currents. $$
