A series of powerful Pacific storms are set to generate massive waves along the California coast, prompting warnings of hazardous conditions from meteorologists.

Wave heights reaching up to 40 feet are anticipated in Northern California, with potential coastal flooding and significant beach erosion.

The National Weather Service has advised people to stay away from the water due to the deadly conditions, emphasizing the risk of drowning and damage to coastal structures. (Trending: Democrat Targets U.S. Troops With New Gun Control Law)

The upcoming holiday period may attract more visitors to beaches, increasing the likelihood of accidents.

The dangerous surf poses a significant risk, especially during California winters, with a recent study linking the trend of larger winter waves to climate change.

Additionally, the storms are expected to bring heavy precipitation to the region, including the possibility of light rain during the Rose Parade in Pasadena.

“People are advised to stay out of and well away from the water, and keep a close eye on kids and pets,” the National Weather Service for the Bay Area said.

“These are deadly conditions that can easily overpower the strongest swimmers.”

“These are not the highest wave heights we’ve seen, but they’re certainly on the larger side,” meteorologist Alexis Clouser said.

“They are deadly due to their size and the potential run-up — our biggest concern is people getting too close to the water and potentially getting swept in.”

“These are forecast to be EXTREMELY DANGEROUS conditions, as powerful waves and life-threatening rip currents pose an exceptional risk of ocean drowning and damage to coastal structures such as piers and jetties,” the National Weather Service in Oxnard, California said.

“What happens a lot of times is somebody goes to the ocean to watch the waves — they go to a beach or parking lot or walk out onto a jetty — and then a bigger set of waves comes and overwhelms them,” said meteorologist Tom Fisher.
