A large NNW swell will rapidly build overnight, and a High Surf Warning has been issued for shores most exposed to the swell, with a High Surf Advisory for shores less exposed.
While the predominant period of the primary NNW swell train will be around 14 seconds, the proximity of gale force winds over waters just NW of the area will introduce a wide spectrum of wave energy extending into the shorter periods, resulting in rough and choppy surf along exposed N facing shores. The swell will become increasingly northerly as it gradually diminishes late Monday/Tuesday.
A small S swell will gradually decline over the next couple of days. A small to moderate long-period NW swell is expected Wednesday night and Thursday, followed by the potential for a very large NW swell by the end of the week.
