Outlook through Monday February 04: Advisory-level surf associated with a moderate west-northwest swell expected to fill in Wednesday will hold through Thursday then slowly fade through Friday. A similar reinforcement out of the west- northwest is expected to fill in by Saturday that will generate near advisory-level surf for north and west facing shores through the weekend. A slightly smaller long-period reinforcement out of the west- northwest will be possible early next week. Rough surf will continue along east facing through the second half of the week and upcoming weekend.
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.
