... High surf advisory in effect from 3 am Friday to 9 am PST
Sunday...

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a
high surf advisory... which is in effect from 3 am Friday to 9 am
PST Sunday.

* Surf and timing... surf is expected to build to 8 to 12 feet late
tonight or early Friday... continue to build on Friday... then
peak at 10 to 15 feet with local sets to 18 feet Friday night
through Saturday evening. Surf will begin to subside late
Saturday night and early Sunday.

* Impacts... the large surf may cause beach erosion and strong rip
currents that will create a risk of ocean drowning. Sneaker
waves can suddenly overrun previously dry beaches and jetties
around the time of high tide.

* Locations... surf will be highest on west and northwest facing
beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf and rip currents will
make swimming and rock jetties dangerous.

Remember... if caught in a rip current... swim parallel to shore
until you are free of the powerful current. Always swim near a
lifeguard.
