High Surf Advisory


Coastal Hazard Message
National Weather Service San Francisco CA
858 AM PST Wed Nov 25 2020

...Breaking Waves and Coastal Runup Wednesday into Thanksgiving...

.A large northwest swell train has arrived and will persist until
at least noon on Thanksgiving Day. Swell heights will build to 14
to 16 feet at 16 to 19 seconds through the day Wednesday which
will result in large breaking waves of 18 to 24 feet, largest on
northwest facing beaches. Brisk northwest winds will be at the
back of these northwest waves on Wednesday and lead to enhanced
coastal runup that can shift the shoreline farther inland than
individuals are accustomed to, and in some cases at shallow
northwest beaches, envelop most of or all of the beach. Winds turn
offshore Thursday which will allow large breakers to persist
through at least midday. In addition, enhanced coastal erosion of
the summer beach profiles will continue in earnest with this large
swell. Anomalously cool water temperatures and turbulent,
unpredictable seas will lead to hazardous conditions along the
coast. It is recommended that individuals stay off rocks and
coastal jetties if visiting the coastline and remain vigilant of
their surroundings until a safe distance from the coast.

Coastal North Bay Including Point Reyes National Seashore-
San Francisco Peninsula Coast-
Southern Monterey Bay and Big Sur Coast-
858 AM PST Wed Nov 25 2020

...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON PST THURSDAY...

* WAVES AND SURF...Large breaking waves 18 to 24 feet along
  northwest facing coastlines.

* TIMING...Today until Noon on Thanksgiving (Thursday). Swell
  subsides late Thursday.

* IMPACTS...Large breaking waves in the surf zone and on
  beaches. These large waves can be erratic and unpredictable
  and may injure or knock beachgoers into the cold, turbulent
  ocean. Brisk winds at the back of these large breaking waves
  on Wednesday will enhance coastal runup on beaches and
  increase coastal erosion, especially at northwest beaches.
  Winds turn offshore on Thursday which will allow continued
  large breakers through at least midday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing large breaking waves, rip currents,
localized beach erosion and sneaker waves.

...AIR STAGNATION ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 5 PM THURSDAY TO 11 AM
PST MONDAY...

* WHAT...High pressure over the area during the advisory period
  will result in light winds, strong valley inversions, and
  limited mixing. These conditions are likely to result in periods
  of diminished air quality during the advisory period.

* WHERE...The valleys of Central Douglas County, Eastern Curry
  County and Josephine County, Eastern Douglas County Foothills,

  significant sources of air pollution. Diminished air quality
  is likely to cause health issues for people with respiratory
  problems if precautions are not taken.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...An incoming frontal system is expected to
  result in improving air quality Monday afternoon.

* View the hazard area in detail at
  https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mfr/HAZARD

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

People with respiratory illness should follow their physician`s
advice for dealing with diminished air quality. N95 masks are
effective at filtering out the majority of harmful air
particulates.

State air quality agencies highly recommend that no outdoor
burning occur and that residential wood burning devices be
limited as much as possible. According to state air quality
agencies, prolonged periods of stagnant air can hold pollutants
close to the ground where people live and breathe. Check with
your local burn agency for any current restrictions in your area.
