The National Weather Service has issued a Beach Hazards Statement for Coastal Del Norte, Northern Humboldt Coast, Southwestern Humboldt and the Mendocino Coast.

  • What To Expect

Long period ocean swell will combine with other waves creating the possibility for sneaker waves at all beaches.

  • TIMING

The highest sneaker wave risk will be from Thursday afternoon through Friday morning.

  • IMPACTS

Larger surf at offshore breaks and an enhanced risk of sneaker waves on northwest California beaches. Steep beaches will have a higher risk of sneaker wave activity with greater wave run-up onto beaches. Large waves will also wash over jetties and rock outcroppings that may normally stay dry.

  • PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

A Beach Hazard Statement is issued when threats such as sneaker waves and other hazards create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution should be used when in or near the water.
