Swell Summary

The ongoing long-period west-northwest swell will gradually decline over the next several days, but a fresh pulse of shorter period northwest swell has been arriving and will stretch into Tuesday. Thus, the High Surf Advisory (HSA) for exposed north and west facing shores has been extended through this afternoon. The HSA may need to be extended further in time, depending on how large the latest pulse turns out to be. Surf heights will decrease slowly late Tuesday into Wednesday, but another batch of long-period west- northwest swell is expected to arrive Wednesday night, peak Thursday into Friday, then gradually subside. Peak surf heights will easily reach HSA levels with this swell, with more northwest swells anticipated into the long range.

No other significant swells are expected.
