Swell Summary

Outlook through Sunday March 11: Surf along east facing shores will gradually ease through Monday. The next advisory-level swell will arrive from the north-northeast Tuesday and continue into next weekend, likely producing high surf along north and east facing shores for most of the week. A small, long-period northwest swell building today will persist through Monday, followed by a slightly larger (but below advisory-level) west-northwest swell Tuesday and Wednesday. Additionally, a small north-northeast swell will persist into Monday, while a small south swell is expected to continue through Wednesday.
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.
