    Our current north-northwest swell has peaked and is slowly trending down Thursday and Friday. Warning and advisory level surf is still expected Thursday.

    The combo of north swell, north winds, high tides and beach erosion could lead to coastal flooding. Keep that in mind as you plan your day.

    A reinforcement is due in late Thursday and a new north-northwest is expected to build Saturday night.

    Surf on east-facing shores continue to ease.

    A small south swell is currently impacting some southern shores and expected to drop over the weekend.

    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.
