Our current north-northwest is expected to fade Friday into the weekend. A moderate north northwest swell is expected to build late Saturday, peak Sunday and maintain through the middle of next week.

Small, long period south and west swells will persist through the weekend. Surf along south facing shores will continue to be chest to head high through Friday, with possible advisory level face heights this weekend as the west swell get a reinforcement.

East shores should remain small as light to moderate trade winds prevail. No small craft advisories are expected through the forecast period.

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.
