HIGH SURF WARNING FOR NORTH AND 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 29: This NE swell will be reinforced by a small to medium pulse of 3 feet between Saturday night and Monday. This swell will be followed by a small to medium NW swell between Sunday night and Tuesday. Surf will be well below advisory level. South-facing shores can expect a slight rise in the surf this Friday through Saturday as a small southwesterly swell arrives.
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.
