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 March 15: An advisory-level swell from the north-northeast will continue into the weekend, producing high surf along east facing shores. A new moderate to large north swell may affect north facing shores late in the weekend and early next week. This swell may bring advisory level surf, and possibly warning level surf, to north and west facing shores.
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.
