Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday February 13: Rough conditions are expected along north facing shores Thursday night through the weekend due to a combination of strong north-northwest winds, a large west-northwest swell and a large short-period northerly swell from a nearby gale expected to develop to the north. Surf will exceed warning levels for north and west facing shores Friday, then remain above warning levels into the weekend. A long-period northeast swell will gradually lower Friday 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.
