The largest days are expected Monday through Tuesday with heights expected to come in below the high surf advisory level. Surf along south facing shores will trend up by midweek as a late season, south-southwest swell arrives and moves through. Surf along east facing shores will remain small and choppy through Monday, then lower Tuesday through midweek as the local winds ease. The exception will be along east facing shores exposed to northerly swell moving through.
