Swell Summary

The first swell of the new year peaking today featuring head high surf heights, then declining Monday. The next large northwest swell is timed to reach the state's north and west facing shorelines Wednesday. This swell has a good probability of generating surf heights above the High Surf Advisory thresholds by Thursday, possibly approaching High Surf Warning heights. A large swell that will be emanating from a late week gale low east of the Kuril Islands may produce high to XL surf next weekend.
