HIGH SURF WARNING FOR NORTH AND WEST 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 Sunday December 02: A long-duration high surf event with overlapping large northwest swells is expected through midweek along north and west facing shores. Surf will peak well above warning levels Monday, then hold through Tuesday. Surf may not drop below advisory levels until late Wednesday as the swell slowly fades. A moderate to large north-northwest swell will be possible Friday into the upcoming weekend. Surf will remain small along south and east facing shores.
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.
