Afternoon Swells

The report below is for SLO Co, but I would imagine it will affect our beaches as well.

This morning’s 6- to 8-foot northwesterly (290-degree deep-water)
swell will quickly build to 13- to 15-feet (with a 19- and
21-second period) by this afternoon.

This swell should peak this evening into Wednesday morning
at 14- to 16-feet (with an 18- to 21-second period).

Note: This very long-period and powerful swell has the
potential to produce strong rip currents, heavy surge
and areas of erosion along the coastline.

If you’re venturing down to the coastline, please be
extremely cautious. Never turn your back on the ocean
and remember that individual sets of the waves can be
twice as high as what is being reported by the buoys.
