HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR NORTH AND WEST 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 Wednesday November 07: The current northwest swell will gradually lower through the rest of the week. Another moderate northwest swell will be possible early next week. Surf along south facing shores will steadily lower through the second half of the week and upcoming weekend. Small to moderate surf will hold along east facing shores into the weekend. No other significant swells expected through early 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.
