Increased Jellyfish Activity
The City of Pismo Beach is located along the Pacific Ocean on the Central Coast of California in San Luis Obispo County. The city beach extends approximately 1.5 miles.
Pismo Beach’s average high temperature is 68 - 78 degrees with annual rainfall of 15.8 inches. During the summer months temperatures occasionally reach the high 90’s. A predominate northwest wind can reach speeds of up to 25 - 35 knots creating extreme ocean conditions. On occasion, tropical storms from the southwest and strong northwest winds will create large swell that can reach the central coast. When this occurs ocean dynamics change. Rip and lateral currents develop resulting in dangerous conditions for the inexperienced ocean swimmer.
