... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 PM PST this
evening...

* waves and surf... breaking waves 22 to 25 feet along west and
northwest facing beaches will slowly diminish to 16 to 21 feet
by late afternoon.

* 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.

another advisory may be required at that time.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.
