HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST 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 October 16: New northwest swell will peak today and gradually fade through Thursday. Former Typhoon Kong-rey, tracked east across the Pacific earlier this week, and is expected to provide a small reinforcement out of the west-northwest Thursday into Friday. Small south and southwest swells will provide small to moderate surf throughout the week. A more notable southwest swell is expected to move in on Wednesday. Surf will gradually rise along east facing shores through tonight and hold into Wednesday due to a mid to long-period easterly swell from Hurricane Sergio in the eastern Pacific.
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.
