February 03, 2019 Surf Forecast
Outlook through Sunday February 10: The current west-northwest swell will peak this morning, then slowly fade tonight. A series of reinforcing west-northwest swells will keep moderate surf in place through the first half of the upcoming work week, but below advisory levels. A much larger northwest swell is expected to build late Thursday and Thursday night, likely bringing warning level surf to north and west facing shores Friday through Saturday. A north-northeast swell is expected to build Wednesday night and Thursday, possibly bringing advisory level surf to east facing shores Thursday night through Friday night.
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.
