Swell Summary

The rough, slightly elevated surf along east facing shores will gradually lower to around the summertime average from tonight into this weekend. Small south and southeast swells will keep small background surf along most south facing shores through Friday. A new small southwest swell is expected to arrive this weekend, followed by the potential for a slightly larger south swell reaching the area early next week. This new south swell may cause surf heights to reach, or possibly exceed, the summertime average along south facing shores starting next Tuesday. Nearly flat conditions will persist along most north and west facing shores through this weekend.
