The advisory level surf is expected to produce rip currents, localized beach erosion, and make swimming difficult and dangerous.

Forecasters say surf will rise to advisory conditions on Tuesday night into Wednesday.

The agency advises beach goers to exercise caution and heed the advice of ocean safety officials.
