Two long-period southerly swells will fill in through the early to mid-week period. The second swell may near advisory levels along the southern shores by Wednesday. Swells will be fading for the second half of the week.

Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
