High Wind Warning
The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning effective from 10pm tonight until 4pm tomorrow for the north and central coasts. South winds 25 to 35 mph, with gusts 45 to 60 mph. Strongest winds will be on exposed headlands and beaches. Damaging winds may damage trees and power lines. Power outages are likely. Travel will be challenging, especially for high profile vehicles late tonight through Monday afternoon. The strongest winds will be late tonight through Monday morning.
Beach hazards including sneaker waves are also possible. Waves can run up significantly farther on a beach than normal, including over rocks and jetties. Sneaker waves can suddenly knock people off of their feet and quickly pull them into the ocean which may lead to serious injury or drowning. Remain out of the water to avoid hazardous swimming conditions. Stay away from large logs on the beach. Sneaker waves can run up on the beach lifting or rolling these extremely heavy logs. People have been injured after being caught under these logs from sneaker wave action.
