A High Surf Advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Waves are expected to be from 6 to 10 ft., and will lower to 5 to 8 ft. by Wednesday.

The National Weather services says to expect large breaking waves and strong currents, which will make swimming difficult and dangerous.

The public should heed all advice given by Ocean Safety officials and exercise caution. Boaters should also expect recreational surfers utilizing harbor channels to access surfing areas.
