SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Some big waves are headed toward the Northern California coast this evening, and the National Weather Service is warning fishermen and beachgoers to stay back from the water through Tuesday afternoon.
The swell will hit the coast from Sonoma County to Monterey County late Sunday evening, and a beach hazards warning will take effect around 11 p.m., the weather service said Sunday in an advisory.
Sneaker waves, strong waves that can wash people into the sea from beaches and rocks, are expected, along with strong rip currents and large surf, the advisory said.
Those fishing or visiting the beach should avoid rocks and jetties and always keep their eyes on the ocean, service officials said.
