Hazards
HIGH SURF WARNING FOR NORTH AND WEST FACING SHORES
Forecast
Surf along north facing shores will be rapidly rising to 25 to 35 feet tonight through Sunday.
Surf along west facing shores will be rapidly rising to 20 to 26 feet tonight through Sunday.
Surf along south facing shores will be 3 feet or less through Sunday.
Surf along east facing shores will be 3 to 5 feet tonight, lowering to 2 to 4 feet Sunday.
Outlook
Outlook through Saturday December 22: A large, long-period northwest swell will quickly build tonight and peak on Sunday. Another, slightly larger northwest swell is expected to build Monday night, bringing another round of warning level surf to north and west facing shores Tuesday through the middle 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.
