Swell Summary

Outlook through Monday March 12: The next advisory-level swell will arrive from the north-northeast Tuesday and continue into next weekend, producing high surf along east, and possibly north, facing shores for most of the week. A west- northwest swell will build Tuesday and hold Wednesday, with surf remaining just below advisory level. Additionally, a small south swell is expected to continue through Wednesday. A new moderate north swell may affect north facing shores late in the weekend and early next week.
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.
