Big Surf Heading For Coast, Beachgoers Warned of Sneaker Waves
The swell will hit the coast from Sonoma County to Monterey County late Monday evening, and a beach hazards warning will take effect around 11 p.m., the weather service said today in an advisory.
Sneaker waves, strong waves that can wash people into the sea from beaches and rocks, are expected, along with strong rip currents and large surf, the advisory said.
Those fishing or visiting the beach should avoid rocks and jetties and always keep their eyes on the ocean, service officials said.
