Swell Summary

Outlook through Friday November 16: Rough conditions with surf nearing advisory levels will be expected over the weekend along north facing shores due to a combination of strong northerly winds and reinforcing northerly swells. Surf will temporarily lower through the day Monday, then trend back up Tuesday through midweek, likely reaching advisory levels for north and west facing shores. A moderate southwest swell that is expected to peak Saturday will gradually ease into early next week. A return of choppy short-period surf is anticipated early next week as the trades return.
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.
