Swell Summary

Outlook through Saturday June 09: A series of swells from the southern hemisphere will continue through the week. As the current, inconsistent southwest swell fades on Sunday, a new south swell will build. This swell will peak Monday and Tuesday with south shore surf near the High Surf Advisory level. Another, similarly sized south swell is due on Friday. Along east facing shores, a low-end moderate trade wind swell will pick up to typical summer time heights on Monday and hold through much of the week. Minimal surf is expected along north facing shores for the next several days, with a tiny increase in northwest swell possible by Wednesday.
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.
