Swell Summary

Outlook through Thursday September 06: The current small southeast swell will fade out tomorrow. A slightly larger south swell is expected to arrive tomorrow, peak late Saturday near the summer average, and gradually decrease through Monday. A very small northwest swell is possible through the weekend. A swell from Hurricane Norman may boost surf along east facing shores during the second half 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.
