A High Surf Advisory has been issued for the Central Coast by the National Weather Service, which is in effect from 9:00am Saturday to 3:00am Sunday. A large westerly swell will produce waves 18 to 20 feet, with breakers around 25 feet possible. Peak wave heights are expected to arrive by Saturday morning and continue through Saturday night. The surf zone will be very hazardous due to strong currents and breaking waves. Very large waves may run-up much higher on the beaches than normal and could catch beachgoers by surprise. These powerful waves can sweep people off jetties and other exposed rocks and can easily move large logs and other beach debris. A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.
Marine: A Gale Warning is in effect for Central Coast waters out past 10 miles until noon today, followed by a Gale Watch from late tonight through late Saturday night. A Gale Watch is also in effect for the nearshore waters from Saturday evening through late Saturday night. S winds 20-30 knots gusting 35-40 knots, combined very rough seas building to 19-22 feet at 18-19 seconds.
Weekend Travel: Wet pavement and breezy through Sunday night in the Valley, Gorge and Coast Range. For the Cascades, rain and snow showers with some snow accumulation possible in the highway passes, the snow level 5,000’ today, 3,500’ tonight rising to 4,500’ tomorrow, then to 6,000’ on Sunday.
