October 29, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Monday November 05: Although confidence is low, strong southerly winds associated with low pressure lifting northward over the local area tonight through Tuesday could lead to rough conditions along exposed south facing shores. Otherwise, surf along south facing shores will continue to lower back toward normal through the rest of the week. A reinforcing long-period northwest swell is expected late Tuesday through Wednesday, which may support advisory-level surf along north and west facing shores.
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.
