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