Swell Summary

Outlook through Friday March 30: The current northeast swell will continue to diminish through Saturday. A modest north-northeast swell is expected from Saturday night into Monday. A small northwest swell is also expected from Sunday night through Tuesday, followed by another small northwest swell during the middle of next week. Small south-southwest and southwest swells are also expected from today into early next week. All swells are expected to remain below advisory levels at this time.
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.
