Hurricane Oho heading northwest into British Columbia, but causing heavy surf for Oregon out of the southwest. Expect unusual beach erosion and wave angles.

From NOAA:

HURRICANE OHO CONTINUES TO MOVE NORTHEASTERLY OVER THE PACIFIC AND WILL REMAIN WELL OFFSHORE AS IT TRANSITIONS INTO A STRONG LOW PRESSURE AREA.

A LARGE SOUTHWEST SWELL GENERATED BY THE STORM IS EXPECT TO ARRIVE IN THE COASTAL WATERS BY LATE THURSDAY NIGHT OR EARLY FRIDAY. WITH SURF SWELLS REACHING 14 FEET ON FRIDAY…THE THREAT OF BREAKING WAVES OVER JETTIES AND SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST FACING BEACHES WILL BE HAMMERED HARD…ALONG WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF GENERATING SIGNIFICANT SURF.

A SWELL OF THIS DIRECTION AND MAGNITUDE IS SOMEWHAT UNCOMMON…AND THESE WAVES MAY ALSO RESULT IN BEACH EROSION IN AREAS THAT DO NOT COMMONLY SEE EROSION FROM INCOMING WAVES.

VISITORS TO THE COAST THIS WEEKEND SHOULD BE VERY CAREFUL IF VENTURING OUT TO OREGON BEACHES. VISITORS SHOULD REMAIN OUT OF THE SURF ZONE AND OFF JETTIES AS BREAKING WAVES CAN SWEEP PEOPLE INTO THE WATER. WAVES CAN ALSO ROLL DRIFTWOOD LOGS AND MOVE OTHER DEBRIS THAT CAN CAUSE TERRIBLE INJURIES – EVEN KILL.

REMEMBER TO NEVER TURN YOUR BACK ON THE OCEAN!

MARINERS SHOULD EXERCISE ABUNDANT CAUTION WHEN VENTURING OUT ALONG THE OREGON COAST. THURSDAY NIGHT THERE IS A GALE WATCH POSTED. FRIDAY WINDS OFF THE COAST WILL RANGE FROM 20 TO 35 MPH, RAIN, AND SEAS TO 13 FEET. ON SATURDAY, WINDS WILL FALL SLIGHTLY 20 TO 30 MPH WITH SEAS LOWERING TO TEN FEET.

SUNDAY THE STORM WILL HAVE PASSED WELL TO OUR NORTHWEST, HITTING NORTH AMERICA AT THE NORTH END OF CANADA’S VANCOUVER ISLAND.
