Outlook
Outlook through Monday October 23: Rough and choppy short-period surf will continue along east facing shores for most of the next week. A long-period south swell is expected continue through early Tuesday with advisory level surf along south facing shores. A gradual decline is expected to begin later Tuesday. A new but small background south swell is expected over the upcoming weekend. The rather small north-northwest swell is on its way down. A new, more moderate size north-northwest swell is due in Thursday afternoon. The swell will peak Thursday night followed by a slow bu gradual decline through the weekend. A larger northwest swell may bring surf to near advisory levels for the north and west facing shores Sunday night and Monday of next week.
Surf heights are forecast heights of the face, or front, of waves. The surf forecast is based on the significant wave height, the average height of the one third largest waves, at the locations of the largest breakers. Some waves may be more than twice as high as the significant wave height. Expect to encounter rip currents in or near any surf zone.
