Our current west-northwest is expected to ease from Wednesday through the rest of the work week. Surf should stay below advisory levels from this swell energy.
A series of new north-northeast swells are filling in this week bringing on High Surf Advisory conditions for east shores. The current north-northeast is peaking today and easing through the rest of the week.
Small southerly swells will continue with small background swell for south facing shores.
