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 Tuesday March 20: The current north swell will continue to gradually diminish through Thursday. Trade winds will maintain elevated, rough surf along east facing shores through early Wednesday. As the winds weaken and shift to a southeast direction later this week, expect surf to diminish along east facing shores. Small north and northwest swells arriving this weekend may produce slight bumps in surf along north and west facing shores from Saturday into 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.
