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 Friday March 02: Surf will remain elevated along east facing shores through the weekend and on into early next week. Larger surf is expected around mid week with surf heights possibly reaching warning levels. A series of small long period south swells are expected through the forecast period. Northwest swell activity will be rather limited through Friday.
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.
