HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR SOUTH 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 Saturday July 14: Long period swell from former Hurricane Fabio will peak today, with surf remaining above advisory levels on east facing shores. The easterly swell along with the trade winds and resulting surf will ease on Sunday. For south facing shores, surf will linger around advisory levels through much of today, then slowly lower tonight and Sunday. Small south swells will continue next week, but resulting surf is expected to remain below advisory levels. No other significant swell or surf is expected.
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.
