HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR 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 Wednesday February 06: The incoming large west-northwest swell will build today, peak at advisory levels along north and west facing shores Thursday into Thursday night, then lower through the end of the week. A new moderate west-northwest swell is expected to peak below advisory levels along north and west facing shores late Saturday through Sunday. Another moderate west-northwest swell is expected to arrive early next week, and may bring surf close to the advisory level across north and west facing shores. Strong north to northeast winds will keep surf around advisory levels across east facing shores through the remainder of the work week, with a slow decline expected over the weekend. Surf will remain small along south facing shores through early next week.
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.
