Outlook through Tuesday February 20: Northwest swell will continue to decline Wednesday night and Thursday, with only small northwest swells then expected through the weekend and into early next week. Building trade winds far to the northeast and east of the state will provide a modest increase in short period east swell late this week and into the weekend. No other significant swells are expected.
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.
