Swell Summary

Outlook through Saturday November 10: No major swells are expected through the forecast period. A small west-northwest swell will arrive late Sunday and continue into the first half of next week followed by a slightly larger north-northwest swell during the second half of the week. Small background south swells will continue through at least Thursday of next week. A slightly larger long-period southwest swell is possible towards the end of next week. Trade winds will produce small to moderate surf along east facing shores into 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.
