Outlook

Outlook through Sunday January 07: A new northwest swell is expected to arrive Tuesday morning then peak late Tuesday into Tuesday night, with surf possibly reaching advisory levels along north and west facing shores. Another moderate northwest swell may affect the area next weekend. Otherwise, choppy surf will continue along east facing shores as trade winds persist through the upcoming week.
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.
