Swell Summary

Outlook through Tuesday February 12: Surf may near advisory levels for east facing shores Wednesday night through Thursday night as a long-period northeast swell arrives. Rough conditions are expected along north and west facing shores Thursday night into the weekend due to a combination of strong to near gale- force north-northwest winds and a large west-northwest swell. Surf will exceed warning levels for north and west facing shores Friday, then remain above warning levels into the 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.
