Swell Summary

Outlook through Tuesday February 13: The current northwest swell will continue to gradually subside through Thursday. A new high-end advisory level or possibly low-end warning level northwest swell will arrive on north and west facing shores Thursday night, peak Friday, then quickly subside during the weekend. Similarly-sized pulses of northwest swell are possible early next week.
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.
