South: Wave heights are expected to be waist high or less today.

Our current north-northwest swell is slowly trending down through the weekend. A new, large, north-northwest is expected to quickly build Saturday night and Sunday producing warning level surf for most north facing shores and some west facing shores. This swell should begin to fade on Monday.

An even larger north-northwest expected to fill in late Tuesday and Wednesday bringing another round of warning level surf to the state.

A small south swell is currently impacting some southern shores and expected to drop over the weekend.

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.
