THRESHOLD ALONG EAST FACING SHORES LATER THIS WEEKEND. SURF MAY
REACH THE HIGH SURF WARNING THRESHOLD ALONG EAST FACING SHORES EARLY
NEXT WEEK. THE TIMING AND SIZE OF THIS SWELL REMAINS UNCERTAIN SINCE

THE ISLANDS. AN INCREASING SOUTH SWELL IS ANTICIPATED TO ARRIVE
THURSDAY WHICH COULD RISE SIGNIFICANTLY FRIDAY.

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.
