HIGH SURF ADVISORY FOR SOUTH FACING SHORES

Our weather team will bring you any urgent weather alerts or updates as they occur. Check our breaking news section for the latest.

Swell Summary

Outlook through Saturday June 16: A reinforcing south swell will arrive tonight and lower during the day Sunday. Another long period south swell may arrive next Thursday and Friday. Short period wind waves will continue along east facing shores through early next week. Small northwest swells are possible around the middle and end of 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.
