Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 1:44 AM PST on December 22, 2014

Expires 1:00 PM EST on December 23, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Tuesday
morning...

* surf... 3 to 5 feet. Isolated sets to 6 feet possible this morning.

* Locations... highest surf along exposed west-facing beaches...
especially north of Newport Beach in Orange County and south
of del Mar in San Diego County.

* Timing... surf slowly lowering through Tuesday. Minor tidal
overflow each morning and strong rip currents through Tuesday.

* Tides... high tides around 7 feet between about 8 am and 9 am
each day.

* Impacts... elevated surf and strong rip currents will result in
dangerous swimming conditions. Minor flooding of low-lying
areas along the beach is possible... including beach parking
lots.

* Outlook... another long period west-northwest swell arriving
Wednesday will likely continue elevated surf and strong rip
currents into Friday. Lowering morning high tides will diminish
the risk of tidal overflow.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as strong
rip currents... elevated surf heights... minor tidal overflow... or
lightning are possible at local beaches. Obey posted warning
signs and flags and talk to a lifeguard before swimming. Use
caution when in or near the water and always swim near a
lifeguard.
