High surf advisory in effect at coast, 8-12 foot waves expected 

–West facing beaches of the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County Central Coast could see large breaking waves of 8 to 12 feet through this morning that will gradually subside in the afternoon, as well as dangerous rip currents, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The advisory is in effect until 11 a.m. Friday morning.
