HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR EAST FACING SHORES

Our weather team will bring you any urgent weather alerts or updates as they occur. Check our breaking news section for the latest.

Swell Summary

Outlook through Thursday February 14: A new very large northwest swell will peak Saturday morning with surf well above High Surf Warning levels along north and west facing shores. A storm low deepening north of the area will produce very high seas from a combination of strong north winds and large north swells. There is a high potential for harbor surges and coastal inundation along north and west facing shores over 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.
