national weather service san francisco bay area
314 pm pst thu nov 14 2019

...increased risk of sneaker waves midday thursday to midday

.a long period west-northwest swell will impact the coastline
from sonoma southward through big sur beginning this afternoon.
the greatest risk of sneaker waves impacting the coast will 
stretch from now through friday afternoon. these sneaker waves 
are infrequent waves just powerful enough to knock unsuspecting 
people into the ocean during otherwise deceptively light seas.

coastal north bay including point reyes national seashore-
san francisco peninsula coast-northern monterey bay-
southern monterey bay and big sur coast-
314 pm pst thu nov 14 2019

...beach hazards statement remains in effect through friday

* timing...the greatest sneaker wave risk will be now through 
  friday afternoon. 

* location...entire pacific coastline from sonoma south to big 

* potential impacts...larger surf at offshore breaks and an 
  enhanced risk of sneaker waves on northwest california 
  beaches. steep beaches will have a higher risk of sneaker wave 
  activity with greater wave run-up onto beaches. large waves 
  will also wash over jetties and rock outcroppings that may 
  normally stay dry. 

precautionary/preparedness actions...

a beach hazard statement for sneaker waves means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of unsuspecting beach
goers being swept into the sea by a wave. people walking along
the beach should never turn their back to the sea. fisherman
should avoid fishing from rocks or jetties.
