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 Thursday June 14: The current south swell will peak tonight and gradually subside tomorrow. A reinforcing, similarly sized south swell will arrive on Sunday, keeping surf at or near advisory levels, then gradually subside early next week. Short- period wind waves will continue along east facing shores for the next several days. The tiny northwest swell is expected through tomorrow. Another similar sized northwest swell is possible around the middle of next 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.
