risk for ocean drowning. Rip currents can pull swimmers and
surfers out to sea. Large breaking waves can cause injury,
wash people off beaches and rocks, and capsize small boats
near shore.

winds gusting to 50 knots and lower atmospheric pressure, water
levels may approach 6.5 to 7 feet near the time of high tide

are expected CONTINUOUSLY through the Monday early morning high
tide, due to the luckily miss aligned high tides and peak surf.
