Swell Summary

A large west-northwest swell, currently coming in around 1 to 2 feet above model guidance, is generating warning level surf along exposed north and west facing shores. Warning level surf will hold through this afternoon before beginning a gradual decline later tonight into early next week. A High Surf Warning (HSW) remains in effect for exposed north and west facing shores through this afternoon. Large surf heights will then decline into the High Surf Advisory (HSA) range from Saturday night into Sunday before dropping below advisory levels by Sunday night into Monday. The forerunners of the next large, long period, northwest swell will arrive on Thursday, this next swell will quickly build to HSA levels by Thursday night and may exceed HSW thresholds by early Friday morning.
