On the middle of one of the wettest Decembers on record, the Bay Area is about to get hit with another round of uncommonly high seas known as the “King Tides.”
Thursday’s powerful storm is generating big waves along the Bay Area coast, calling for a high surf advisory until 4 p.m. Friday.
While the Bay Area braces for what is forecast to be the biggest storm in 6 years, if not 16 years, any hyperbole is nothing compared to what the UK is facing in a storm called the “Storm of the Century,” and a “Weather Bomb” packing 40-50 foot waves (that’s over 15 meters for Anglophiles), and 70-80 mile per hour winds.
Sustained winds at or near hurricane strength in the highest elevations with gusts exceeding 100 miles per hour across the Sierra summit are forecast for Thursday, with Bay Area winds easily gusting past 50 miles per hour in urban areas and 70-80 miles per hour in the local mountains and hills in what could be the storm of the decade.
A powerful storm system described by forecasters as the “storm of the decade” is expected to whip up large and dangerous surf along the Bay Area’s coastline Thursday through Saturday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Beach Hazards Statement Monday for parts of the coastal Bay Area including San Francisco, Sonoma and southern Monterey counties.
