Swell Summary

Outlook through Wednesday April 04: A declining east northeast swell will remain into Saturday. Background south and southeast swells will provide small surf along south facing shores into the weekend. A moderate west northwest swell is expected Friday evening, and will peak early Saturday morning. This swell will likely produce near advisory level surf for the north and west facing shores 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.
