Outlook through Wednesday January 24:
Rough conditions with advisory-level surf and strong onshore winds

gradual downward trend is expected over the weekend along east facing
shores as the trades begin to ease. Surf along north and west facing
shores will trend down Thursday through Friday, remaining below

be reinforced with a moderate northwest swell by Monday, potentially

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.
