Only leftovers expected from our northwest swell. A large west-northwest is forecast to build Tuesday, peak Wednesday and fade after that. Another storm is forecast to generate swell for the weekend of the 28th. Will keep an eye on it.
Advisory level surf is forecast to continue for east facing shores today.
Our current small southwest swell continues Monday but it’s nothing to write home to mom about.
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.
