HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH 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 Tuesday February 06: A moderate north swell will keep surf around advisory level for north facing shores through tonight, before quickly dropping off Wednesday. A small east swell produced from trade winds upwind of the state will continue to produce some elevated surf along east facing shores through Thursday. A large northwest swell is expected to arrive Wednesday night and Thursday with an even larger northwest swell expected over the weekend.
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.
