    The National Weather Service is warning Bay Area residents and visitors of an increased risk of rip currents and sneaker waves at beaches in the region because of a southerly swell hitting the coast between Monday and Wednesday.

    Weather service officials said there is moderate confidence in the surf forecast that will primarily affect south-facing shorelines, with smaller impacts at southwest and west-facing beaches.

    The increased swell is expected to dissipate late Wednesday morning and will continue to decrease later in the week, according to the weather service.
