..SIGNIFICANT COASTAL IMPACTS EXPECTED DUE TO HAZARDOUS SURF
 
 
A SIGNIFICANT NORTHWEST SWELL EXPECTED TO ARRIVE SUNDAY WILL LEAD  
TO LIFE-THREATENING SURF ALONG EXPOSED NORTH AND WEST FACING  
SHORES THROUGH MONDAY. STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS COMBINED WITH PEAK  
MONTHLY HIGH TIDES JUST AFTER MIDNIGHT SUNDAY NIGHT WILL COMPOUND  
THE SITUATION, LIKELY TRANSLATING TO SIGNIFICANT BEACH EROSION,  
PERIODIC OVERTOPPING OF NEARBY VULNERABLE COASTAL ROADWAYS, AND  
PROPERTY DAMAGE. CURRENTS DUE TO HARBOR SURGES COULD BECOME  
STRONG ENOUGH TO DAMAGE BOATS AND INFRASTRUCTURE DUE TO JOSTLING  
OF DOCKS.  
 
STAY TUNED FOR FORECAST UPDATES FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.
