Big Waves Expected at Local Beaches
Posted March 5th, 2014 @ 7:27am

The National Weather Service attributed the high surf to a large long- period west-northwest swell. A high surf advisory issued by the agency midday Tuesday was scheduled to expire at 2 p.m. today.

Through early this afternoon, 5- to 8-foot waves with local sets to 10 feet are expected. Extreme and high surf can cause strong rip currents and minor beach erosion.
