HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR SOUTH 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 Monday June 11: The current long-period south swell will hold through tomorrow, then gradually subside from Tuesday evening through Thursday. A new long- period south swell arriving early Friday may cause surf to reach the High Surf Advisory criteria along south facing shores once again next weekend. Locally strong trade winds will maintain choppy surf along east facing shores. A couple of small northwest swells may produce a slight bump in surf along north facing shores from Wednesday into this 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.
