Coastal Hazard Message
National Weather Service San Francisco CA
815 PM PST Sat Jan 22 2022

...LONG PERIOD NORTHWEST SWELL WILL BRING RISK OF SNEAKER WAVES
TO BEACHES SUNDAY AFTERNOON TO MIDDAY MONDAY...

.A northwest swell train is forecast to approach the coast midday
Sunday and bring an increased risk of sneaker waves to area
beaches. Initial forerunner waves of 1 to 2 feet at 21 to
22 seconds are possible through tomorrow morning, but the main
risk will arrive with the 3 to 6 foot waves at 17 to 20 seconds
Sunday afternoon into Monday morning. A beach hazard statement
for sneaker waves is issued when the ocean state features a
deceptively calm ocean with long lulls between large waves
capable of knocking unsuspecting beachgoers off of coastal rocks,
outcroppings, and into the cold, restless ocean.
