High weekend surf
January 13, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

A high surf advisory was issued Sunday for Bay Area beaches north of San Francisco. The National Weather Service issued the advisory Sunday morning, as a large swell producing waves of up to 17 feet approached beaches in Marin and Sonoma counties, according to the weather service.

The advisory was in effect until late Sunday afternoon.

Higher-than-normal surf can produce dangerous conditions along the region’s coastlines, generating strong currents, rip tides, sneaker waves and localized erosion, the weather service said.

Beachgoers were advised to be alert and stay off of rocks along the shoreline.

The weather service also issued a coastal hazards statement for beaches south of San Francisco, where surf was not expected to be as high but could still produce dangerous conditions.
