A new north-northeast swell is forecast to fill in Tuesday possibly bringing on High Surf Advisory conditions. Small Craft Advisories could be posted during this time too.
Small southerly swells will continue with small background swell for south facing shores.
Keep in mind, surf heights are measured on the face of the wave from trough to crest. Heights vary from beach to beach, and at the same beach, from break to break.
