today and early tonight. Sets to 15 feet are possible at
exposed locations such as Ventura pier. High surf will slowly
subside late tonight through Saturday evening.

* Impacts... large, powerful, and dangerous waves with strong

jetties. There will be also a high risk of life-threatening
rip currents. Damaging breaking waves are possible near the
entrance of the Ventura Harbor. Local flooding of low lying
beach parking lots will be possible with the high surf.

the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and very

direction following the shoreline until you are able to break
free of it.
