* WHAT…For the High Surf Warning, dangerously large breaking
waves of 14 to 20 feet with dangerous rip currents. Highest
surf Monday through Monday night on west and southwest facing
beaches. For the Coastal Flood Advisory, minor coastal flooding
expected during the early morning high tides.

* WHERE…San Luis Obispo County Beaches and Santa Barbara
County Central Coast Beaches.

* WHEN…For the High Surf Warning, until 9 PM PST Tuesday. For
the Coastal Flood Advisory, until 9 AM PST Tuesday.

* IMPACTS…Flooding of sea water is likely, around the time of
high tide, over vulnerable low-lying coastal areas such as
parking lots, beaches, and walkways. Significant damage to
roads or structures is NOT expected. Powerful waves and strong
rip currents will pose an exceptional risk of ocean drowning
and damage to coastal structures like piers and jetties. Large
breaking waves can cause injury, wash people off beaches and
rocks, and capsize small boats near shore.

morning between 5 AM and 7 AM, peaking around 5.6 feet.
