Swell Summary

Outlook through Sunday November 18: Surf along north and west facing shores is expected to climb to advisory levels Tuesday through midweek as a large north-northwest swell fills in. This source will slowly ease into the second half of the week with only small to moderate reinforcing northwest swells expected by next weekend. Small background south and southwest swells will support small surf continuing through the week along south facing shores.
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.
