Swell Summary

Outlook through Tuesday April 03: The current northeast swell will continue to decline through Thursday. A small short period northwest swell will persist through at least Thursday, providing for small waves along the exposed north and west facing shores. Background south swells will also provide for above nil surf for south facing shores through most of the period. Long term guidance suggests a moderate west- northwest swell building Friday, and peaking early Saturday morning. This swell will likely produce near advisory level surf for the north and west facing shores Friday night and Saturday.
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.
