.MARINE...AS OF 3:00 PM PDT SATURDAY...UPGRADED ADVISORY TO A HIGH SURF WARNING. BUOY 59 HAS REPORTED SEAS FROM 25 TO 33 FEET ALL DAY. NOT EXPECTING TOO MUCH DECAY AS THIS WAVE TRAIN HEADS TOWARDS THE COAST. HIGH SURF WARNING STARTS AT 5 PM AND OFFICIALLY GOES THROUGH 5 AM MONDAY. WE`LL ACTUALLY FALL OUT OF WARNING CRITERIA BY TOMORROW AFTERNOON AND THEN CONVERT TO ADVISORY...BUT THATS SEMANTICS. WENT AND LOOKED BACK AT HISTORICAL DATA AND FOR THE MOST PART THE LAST TIME WAVES WERE THIS BIG WAS THE JAN 4TH 2008 STORM AND OVER THE LAST DECADE THERE HAVE BEEN RELATIVELY FEW EVENTS WHERE 25 FOOT SETS PASSED OVER THE BUOYS.
