Forecasters say large swells to hit California coast

The end of the week is expected to bring a large swell to the beaches along the California coast, including San Francisco’s shoreline, according to forecasters.

The National Weather Service is predicting that sneaker waves — large waves that surprise people after long stints of small waves, are possible along the state from Thursday evening through Friday morning.

There are also chances that the coast will see rip currents, the erosion of coastal bluffs and dunes and large surfs — likely between 22 and 27 feet in height.
