    A high surf advisory was placed in affect for most of the coastline of the Bay Area on Friday.

    Wavess up to 23 feet high have been hitting from Monterey to Sonoma County. There were some reports of 16 to 20 foor seas from Bodega Bay to Point Arena Friday morning.

    In San Francisco, peak swells will coincide with high tide at about 10 a.m., meaning their could be beach erosion.

    The waves can be beautiful, but people are warned not to get too close.

    The high surf advisory is expected to remain in effect through about 10 p.m. Friday night. 

    NBC Bay Area Meteorologist Craig Herrera said the recent spell of wet weather is over for now.

    "We may have a few light showers in the North Bay Saturday evening," he said.
