100 degrees or higher in inland Orange County... the inland
Empire and far inland valleys and foothills of San Diego County.

Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 6:42 AM PDT on September 16, 2014

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on September 18, 2014

... Beach hazards statement in effect through Thursday evening...

The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued a beach
hazards statement for strong rip currents and elevated surf... which
is in effect through Thursday evening.

* Waves and surf... 4 to 6 feet along southwest facing beaches. 2
to 4 feet elsewhere.

* Rip currents... widespread dangerous rip and longshore currents.

* Timing... through early Thursday evening.

* Impacts... the elevated surf... strong rip currents... and
longshore currents will produce dangerous swimming
conditions... especially for inexperienced swimmers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
Rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties... inlets... and piers. Swimmers caught in a rip
current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. Swimmers should always
swim near a lifeguard.

The National Weather Service wants to hear from you.
