November 14, 2018 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Wednesday November 21: The current north-northwest swell will hold steady today, then subside through Thursday. A reinforcing northwest to north-northwest swell expected Thursday night will likely boost surf back above the advisory threshold on Friday and gradually subside through the weekend. Surf will build along east facing shores over the weekend as winds increase, but will remain below advisory levels. Winds may further strengthen next week, and may bring advisory level surf along east facing shores. Only small surf is expected along south 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.
