Outlook through Wednesday October 25:
Dangerous surf will continue along east facing shores through Friday,
then slowly trend down over the weekend. A long-period north-northwest
swell is expected to peak Friday, then ease into the weekend. This
will become reinforced by a larger northwest swell Sunday through
early next week. Heights may near advisory levels along north and west
facing shores late Sunday through Monday. Surf is expected to build
over the weekend along south facing shores as a small to moderate
south-southwest swell fills in.

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.
