February 02, 2019 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Saturday February 09: Surf along east facing shores will remain elevated through tonight, then drop below advisory levels by Sunday morning. Several west- northwest swells are expected through middle of next week and will continue to produce moderate surf along north and west facing shores. The first in the series of swells is expected to arrive later today, producing surf below advisory levels. The next west-northwest swell due in Monday through Tuesday, will be slightly smaller than the one this weekend. Another west-northwest swell due in Tuesday night and Wednesday will be similar to the on this weekend, with surf heights expected to remain below advisory levels. A much larger northwest swell is then expected to build late next week, potentially bringing warning level surf to north and west facing shores on Friday.
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.
