Coastal swell brings large waves, rip tides
December 16, 2013, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

Anyone heading to Bay Area beaches on Sunday and Monday should keep an eye on the ocean, as a coastal swell is expected to bring big waves and rip currents to the regional coastline.

The National Weather Service issued a beach hazards statement for Northern California beaches from Sonoma County to Monterey, saying coastal spots could see waves between six to eight feet high and breaking around 17 seconds apart, according to the weather service.

The westerly swell could produce sneaker waves and strong tides, posing a potential risk to beachgoers and people fishing from shoreline rocks or jetties the weather service said.

The beach hazards statement will be in effect through Monday afternoon.
