Surf along the coast of San Francisco turned rough Monday and will again on Tuesday, thanks to a former typhoon.
The remains of Typhoon Wipha will never reach California, but waves kicked up by the once-deadly storm soon will.
"Storm-generated waves that travel great distances across the ocean are referred to as swells," stated AccuWeather.com Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
The swell from Wipha are expected to keep the surf rough through Tuesday with swells building to 6 to 8 feet with locally higher sets.
Such waves will create dangers for beachgoers, those fishing from rocks and jetties and operators of small craft near the coast. Potentially dense fog is another hazard that will be present Tuesday morning.
Seas will subside at midweek as the swells from Wipha pass.
