HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST FACING SHORES

Our weather team will bring you any urgent weather alerts or updates as they occur. Check our breaking news section for the latest.

Swell Summary

Outlook through Friday January 26: Surf will remain elevated along east facing shores through Sunday, before dropping below the advisory level of 8 ft. The swell from the north will continue to fade through Saturday as well. A small northwest swell is expected arrive Saturday night, and be reinforced with a moderate west-northwest swell Sunday night through Monday. Surf will peak Monday night near advisory level, then gradually lower through midweek. A small background swell from the south will persist through the forecast period.
Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.
