Gardening note --
In addition to the implications to the local surf conditions I would suggest that you make arrangement's to protect any winter crops you may be growing. The strong Santa Ana's, sometimes called "the devil winds" can be hard on any new growth. A good watering would be in order and if your plants are exposed then some wind protection might be advisable too.
