The Coast Guard is urging beach-goers and mariners to keep careful watch of weather conditions that will hit the Pacific NW coast this weekend.

The Coast Guard said remnants of Hurricane Oho are predicted to cause unusually high ocean swells that will create breaking waves over jetties along beaches.

"Surfers, swimmers and recreational boaters must pay close attention to these dangerous surf conditions," said Capt. David Berliner, deputy commander, Sector Columbia River. "People should also stay off the rocks near the shoreline until surf conditions normalize."

Mariners are encourage to monitor VHF-FM radio channel 16 for all notices and weather updates.

Information about bar conditions and closures can be found on the United States Coast Guard Pacific Northwest Twitter account.
